STUYVESANT – The 117-acre Nutten Hook
Unique Area in the Town of Stuyvesant is now more accessible to the public
with $100,000 in improvements by the state Department of Environmental
Conservation.

The enhancements include a small gravel parking area and gravel bus parking
area; two picnic areas, which include a covered pavilion; and a trailhead
information kiosk. Later this year, DEC will complete work on a universally-accessible
pathway to the Hudson River and improvements to the beach area, where
people can launch car-top boats.

The Nutten Hook Unique Area is part of the Hudson River National Estuarine
Research Reserve system.

The new improvements are located off Ice House Road in Stuyvesant.
