Nyack Anchorage on the Hudson River

I anchored one night in the Nyack Anchorage. It was a nice place to stop but I did not go ashore. I did not need supplies and I was too tired to put the dinghy into the water. However they do have a public dock, for dinghies, and there are shops and restaurants within walking distance.

The Nyack Anchorage is located north-east of the mooring field near the west shore. A public dock is located just south of the mooring field and north of condo development. Do not enter the private condo marina.

Nyack, New York

Nyack is an outer suburb of New York City lying approximately 19 miles north of Manhattan on the west bank of the Hudson River.

Nyack is one of five southeastern Rockland County villages and hamlets that constitute “The Nyacks” – Nyack, Central Nyack, South Nyack, Upper Nyack and West Nyack.

Named after the Native Americans who resided there before European colonization, the village consists mostly of low-rise buildings lying on the hilly terrain that meets the western shore of the Hudson River.

Adjacent South Nyack is the western terminus of the Tappan Zee Bridge, connected across the Hudson River to Tarrytown in Westchester County by U.S. Interstate 87, an important commuter artery.

Shopping in Nyack

The closest store to the public dock is the Parks Village Market at 10 North Broadway Street. It is a small store but should have all the basic food staples one could need. It is about 1/3 of a mile walk and takes about 8 minutes to walk it.

  • Parks Village Market
  • Broadway Bistro
  • Turiello’s Pizzeria

On your walk to Parks Village Market, you will pass a few restaurants on the way. The Broadway Bistro is on the southeast corner of Broadway and Main Street and Turiello’s Pizzeria is on the northwest corner.

Although Nyack only has a few grocery stores it has many restaurants and bars. Any flavor you want can be found in Nyack.
