I live about 2 hours away in North Jersey. Poughkeepsie in general is a nice area. Downtown Poughkeepsie is a little bit run down and is a place I wouldn't consider living. The towns surrounding Poughkeepsie are very nice. You are near the Catskill Mountains, which offers great views and recreation opportunities. There is train service to Manhattan, so you can always take a day trip into NYC. There are warm summers and cool to cold winters there.

I would talk to Zuriga who is from that part of New York and is the expert on the area on VT. She may know specifics.

I know CIA is in Poughkeepsie and has a great reputation. That is just about my extent of my knowledge of CIA. I do not object to you sending me e-mail Easty@virtualtourist.com. I can answer some general questions, but I can not answer specifics.

Travel Tips for Poughkeepsie

Christ Episcopal Church-Part of the Haunted Tour

by moiraistyx

"The ghost of former Rector, Dr. Alexander Griswold Cummings has been reported here many times since his death in the late 1940s or early 50s. While he was still living, he did not like using candles, so candles used during services were repeatedly blown out. At one point, a bat materialized in the church, then disappeared. In the 1970s, Bishop James Pike, Rector at the time, scared the ghost away from the sanctuary by bringing his dog into the church. After that, Alexander remained quiet for a while. In the 1990s, Alexander surfaced again. This time, it was because current Rector, the Rev. Michael Phillips, decided to move the Rector's office to a different location in the building. The move outraged the ghost, and for years afterwards, the old rector's office (now the library) would be freezing cold in the mornings, even during the spring. Eventually, the ghost went back into hiding. Another ghost is the spirit of an elderly lady, who died in the middle of a service sometime in the 1910s. Her ghost has been seen sitting in a pew halfway back, and many who sit halfway back in darkness in the evening and night feel a strange presence, even if there appears to be nothing there."

This church has some very beautiful stained glass windows and woodwork. Even if you don't see the ghost it is definately a nice visit.

The Hudson Valley, NY

by laughingcoyote

"Some photos"

Along the Hudson River, there are wonderful light houses. This one is in Saugerties, NY. At one time, Anyone could buy a lighthouse on the Hudson for One Dollar! The stipulation was that you would have to remove it . The gov't didn't want to pay for lighthouse keepers, and lights were becoming automatic. Luckily, none were bought. Today, the local towns have worked to rebuild and keep the houses. This one has a live in keeper.

"Ice boating on the Hudson"

This year, the ice has been really great for sailing!
The boats are old, from the old estates and are restored by local enthusiasts.
Anyone who shows up at Rokeby ( the name of an old estate in Rhinebeck , NY) can jump on and be taken for a ride that often approaches 50 MPH. This is a unique adventure, as these old boats are not found in many other parts of the world.
