Since its creation, the Walkway Over the Hudson in Poughkeepsie, New York has been a unique destination. It overlooks the crystal Hudson River, and is framed by the cliff side of Highland, and the horizon of Poughkeepsie City. Locals enjoy it for its presence as a place to walk and blow off steam, but something about this special place leads people from far and wide to make trips similar to pilgrimages.
