About the Photo

This magnificent view, shot by photographer Russell Cusick, captures the grandeur of New York’s Hudson Highlands. Looking westward, it encompasses a stretch of the Hudson River that was highly significant during the American War of Independence. The United States Military Academy at West Point is just left of center on the western shore. The R.W. Dow Corporation is located on the eastern shore of the river, across from The Point, on Garrison’s Landing.

We’d love to have you visit. If you do, bring your walking shoes. We’d be delighted to give you a tour and share the rich history of the area; perhaps some local lore too.
