Nyack is a bustling river town village in Orangetown and Clarkstown featuring a multitude of indoor and outdoor entertainment and food options with a vibrant west-village downtown feel.
Beautiful Nyack Beach State Park
at Hook Mountain
is popular with walkers, bikers, and picnickers and serves as a link between Rockland Lake State Park
and Nyack central. There’s also Nyack Memorial Park,
which has a lovely little children’s playground. For shopping, the Palisades Mall
, one of the largest malls in the country, can entertain a whole family for hours.
For the culturally-inclined, the Debra Weiss Dance Company
provides both dance programs and classes, and the Hopper House Art Center
, the birthplace of the famed realist painter Edward Hopper, is a must-see, featuring outdoor jazz in the summer. No one with a good palette should miss Didier Dumas Patisserie
, a delightful little French bakery, Wasabi,
the best local Japanese fusion, or the Middle Eastern cuisine at the Art Café
. For more dining options and local activities, be sure to visit our Dining, Leisure & Life
