Town of Coxsackie, NY
For beautiful river views and exceptional eateries look no further than Coxsackie, NY.
Located along the Hudson River on the east side of Greene County, Coxsackie—pronounced “cook-sock-ee”—features outdoor exploration, spectacular restaurants, and a sense of history. The town’s name is from an Algonquin Indian word meaning “Place of Owls,” or “Cut Rocks,” according to former Coxsackie Historian Margaret A. Chaloner. The first settlement in the town was in West Coxsackie, known then as “the Upper Village,” in the mid-1700s. With Coxsackie’s close proximity to cities like Albany, approximately 30 minutes away, and New York City, just over two hours away, it’s an ideal drive-to destination.
