Haverstraw Beach, NY
In 1780, American General Benedict Arnold and the British spy John André exchanged the plans to West Point at Haverstraw Beach. A stone marker identifies the placewhere Andre landed. This site, the location of an early town named Snedeker's Landing, is also known as the oldest shipyard in Rockland County. It built barges to ferry brick from the nearby brickyards in Haverstraw to New York. Time has erased most evidence of that once thriving community.
This is nice place to fish and enjoy views of Haverstraw Bay, the widest point of the Hudson River. Haverstraw Beach is accessible only by bicycle or foot. (Vehicles are not permitted on the Bike Path).
Open: Dawn till Dusk. For more information, please call 845-268-3020.
