Croton Point Park encompasses miles of the Hudson River shoreline with incredible views and remnants of the region’s past. Ancient shell mounds shed light on the Indigenous peoples who inhabited the area for generations prior to European colonization. Remains of the first commercial vineyard in the Northeast are just steps away from historic brickyards that helped build Manhattan. Croton Point served as a dumping ground for years until local efforts restored the park into a model of environmental conservation. Today, bald eagles have returned to nest alongside visitors exploring remarkable landmarks, sailing the waters of the Hudson, or enjoying a scenic picnic.
Authors Scott Craven and Caroline Curvan will discuss their newly released book, Croton Point Park: Westchester’s Jewel on the Hudson. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing following the presentation.
This program will take place in Room C on the 3rd Floor of the Library.
Free and open to all.
