New Paltz is renowned for its stone houses on Historical Huguenot Street and its sumptuous Hudson Valley scenery. Hidden within the crevasses of history, however, are many places which, while perhaps lesser-known, are well worth a visit. Among these little wonders are a bridge from the 1800s, a forgotten slave burial site, an underground study zone and a beautiful overlook of New Paltz and the surrounding areas.
The overlook on Route 44/55 is a bastion for local sightseeing. To your left is the SUNY New Paltz campus, and off in the far distance are the Mountains. Monica Bachmann reports.
