Garrison is located on the Hudson River in southeastern New York, almost directly across from the West Point Military Academy. It was, at one time, the site of an important ferry crossing on the river until the construction of the Bear Mountain Bridge. An interesting fact about the town is that it was the filming location of the 1969 movie, "Hello Dolly." Located approximately one hour due north of New York City, the town of Garrison is nestled in a serene mountain setting. Outdoor recreational activities are abundant and include hiking and biking, boating and fishing, golf, tennis, wildlife viewing, birdwatching, windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking and swimming. The Constitution Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary is located on Indian Brook Road in Garrison, and is operated by the National Audubon Society. This 200-acre sanctuary is open to visitors who can either canoe the marsh or enjoy it from the boardwalk. Other attractions in the town of Garrison include The Garrison Art Center, the 19th century Boscobel Restoration Museum and Manitoga, which is an ecologically designed home situated on 80 acres with lovely views of the Hudson River, that offers hiking and picnicking. Garrison is also just four miles to the village of Cold Spring, which is known for its many antique shops, boutiques and good restaurants.
