OUR TAKE ON GERMANTOWN

Nestled on the east bank of the Hudson River 100 miles north of New York City and 40 miles south of Albany, over 2,000 Germantown residents enjoy a quiet, family-centered lifestyle in the country with easy access to the river for boating, fishing, and viewing spectacular sunsets behind the Catskill Mountains.  Geographically the heart of the Hudson Valley that so attracted Hudson School painters such as Frederic Church– whose mansion “Olana” sits on a hill a few miles north–Germantown also offers rich cultural and educational experiences at nearby Bard College and historic Hudson City where antique stores and art galleries attract nation-wide buyers.

Surrounding a lovely small lake with picnic facilities, Palatine Park offers a colorful playground, Little League and soccer fields, Kellner Community Activities Center, and the “Dog Bark” dog park.  Set in a quiet garden area, the Germantown Library offers audio-visual equipment for programs and meetings.  Boaters and fishing fans have two access points to the Hudson River:  Cheviot Park off State Rt. 9G and Lasher Memorial Park in North Germantown.  As a major migration route, the Hudson Valley is a bird watcher’s delight, and Germantown’s KEEP Conservation area on County Rte. 8 is open year-round for bird watching or just walking in nature.

The downtown business area also charmingly evokes earlier eras, including the well-known Otto’s Market, historic Central House B&B, and the iconic Gtel Teleconnections building.  Germantown Central School, just off State Rte 9G serves grades pre-kindergarten through Senior High School for Germantown and parts of neighboring communities.
