The heart of Dutchess County, the city of Poughkeepsie blends a peaceful country atmosphere with metropolitan convenience.
The housing market in Poughkeepsie is as diverse as its residents. Options range from single-family homes and apartments to condos and luxury townhouses. New development takes full advantage of waterfront land, offering its residents unparalleled views of the river.
While Poughkeepsie resides in the center of the Hudson Valley industrial district, much of its charm lies in the nature that surrounds it. Favorite recreational activities in the area include swimming, boating, kayaking, and camping. Public parks like Waryas Park have ample green space for those looking for respite from bustling city life. Hiking and biking trails offer stunning views of scenic upstate New York.
The tree-lined streets of this walkable commercial hub house gourmet markets and upscale boutiques. Trendy cafes and popular restaurants share the space with local art galleries and shops. A string of bars and pubs offer the perfect place to catch up over a round of drinks at happy hour or a laid-back night out. The performing arts scene is thriving, with plenty of theaters and concert venues for locals to enjoy. The Bardavon 1869 Opera House and The Barrett Art Center are popular cultural hotspots.
But while Poughkeepsie has plenty of entertainments, they are well-balanced by the district’s peaceful rural vibe. Residents truly enjoy the best of both worlds.
