The 411: Nestled at the confluence of two rivers (Croton and Hudson), Croton-on-Hudson offers an abundance of pastoral beauty and tranquility along with relative convenience for City-bound commuters (Croton is an express stop on Metro-North’s scenic Hudson Line). An incorporated village, Croton is part of the town of Cortlandt. Outdoor lovers and nature enthusiasts enjoy many waterfront options, including Senasqua Park and the 500-acre Croton Point Park, overlooking the Hudson. Additional points of interest include Teatown Lake Reservation, a nature preserve, and the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail, which stretches from Croton to the New York City border. Recent revitalization efforts have targeted Croton’s considerable riverfront property for recreational use. The village’s picturesque character was recognized in 2004 when Croton received the first “Visions in Planning” award by the Hudson River Greenway. A strong sense of community pervades the village, thanks to an excellent school system and a myriad of well-attended, organized annual events, from parades and outdoor concerts to window-painting competitions and Christmas tree-decorating days. The Great Hudson River Revival, hosted at Croton Point Park, celebrates folk art, music, and the environment, while Croton’s annual Summerfest offers a venue for local artists.
