When you’re ready to get out of Brooklyn for a day, nothing beats a leisurely stroll along the main street of a small town. Cold Spring, just 50 miles north of New York City, is a quaint town on the banks of the Hudson River. Its many well-preserved 19th-century buildings have earned it a place on the National Register of Historic Places as the Cold Spring Historic District. Whether you’re into antiquing, hiking, or just sitting at a café watching the world (or the river) pass by, Cold Spring is a refreshing antidote to the hustle and bustle of city life.
