Lots of local info is readily available here. Don't miss the small upstairs mini-museum with pics and paraphenalia from the past. Even the bricks and bluestone that used to be part of the areas economy are to be found. Enjoyed learning more about the area.

See historic photos of the local area and pick up maps and tourist information. We took a walking tour of the Rondout area which met here.

This visitor center by the waterfront has a wealth of information about the area. Especially useful are self guided walking tours of the city. Helpful maps and info about dining, activities, etc. Free parking in municipal parking lot near center.
