Port Ewen NY Real Estate

Port Ewen real estate is equal parts about the river lifestyle and the convenience of the town's location on the Hudson River. The Rondout Creek forms the border between the City of Kingston and the Town of Esopus' hamlet of Port Ewen, and it’s right there that the Rondout meets the Hudson River. The eastside of Port Ewen is on the river, so living in Port Ewen is about living on the Hudson, and the main north-south road, Route 9W, that takes you from Kingston through Port Ewen and south through Esopus and Highland towards the Mid-Hudson Bridge, provides regular glimpses of the river. Haven't heard of Port Ewen? It's smaller than many of the popular river towns like Hudson, Beacon and Newburgh, and it has a small-town friendliness.

Port Ewen Lifestyle and History

You could also say Port Ewen NY is a suburb of Kingston, because Port Ewen homeowners take full advantage of Kingston's awesomeness, and because its neighborhoods hold their fair share of the Kingston work force. The work force of the Pennsylvania Coal company originally peopled Port Ewen - it began as a coal depot! Three farms were purchased in 1851 for the purpose of creating a coaling depot, the hamlet was named after the coal company president and its streets after the company officers. Twenty years later, a town historian wrote, “The village is beautifully situated on land gradually rising from the riverbank to the height of 180 feet. The view is very fine, with the river and Dutchess County on the east, the Catskill Mountains in the north, while the river valley stretches away to the south.” 

As we mentioned, Port Ewen is not a very big place physically — just 2.7 square miles, and .7 of that is water—but it forms an important link between Kingston and points south along the Hudson. A lot of people living in Port Ewen commute to New York City, either by driving or on the train from Rhinecliff or Poughkeepsie.

Port Ewen is an unassuming little hamlet, but don’t let appearances fool you. It has everything… plus the bonus of the river. People come to simply sit by the water, or they fish, or boat. Whatever you can do on the river, people come to Port Ewen to do. And Port Ewen residents take the stewardship of their portion of the Rondout Creek and Hudson River to heart.

There are two places you can put a small boat in the water at Port Ewen, Sleightsburgh Park and George H. Freer Memorial Beach (kayaks and canoes only); kayak events are scheduled throughout the boating season. Near the end of the 19th century Sleightsburgh contained a store, a shipyard, a schoolhouse and about 200 inhabitants. These days it’s crowded with pleasure-seekers, out for a walk on the peninsula stretching into the Hudson River.

There are three places to launch a larger boat easily if you live in Port Ewen: Hidden Harbor Yacht Club (membership required) which has a club with a full schedule of social events year-round, including the Harborfest, Valentines Brunch, Octoberfest and Commodores Ball, along with the newer Cinco de Mayo celebration and Family Day; the 2 public marinas are just around the bend in Connelly and on the Rondout in Kingston.

For more quiet amusements on dry land, check out the Town of Esopus Library in Port Ewen; they have a packed agenda of workshops, talks, book clubs and the like, with separate calendars for children’s, adults’ and teens’ events. The Library is on a nice, grassy site on Canal Street, and if you follow Canal Street down towards the Hudson, you reach Freer Beach, where, besides the kayak launch, they have a playground, basketball court and a pavilion and kitchen you can rent. All summer long there are weddings, birthday parties and celebrations there.

The Town of Esopus has an all-volunteer Economic Development Committee, whose sole aim is to make it as easy for new businesses to launch and thrive in Esopus. If you’d like to volunteer for a board or committee, there are multiple opportunities in Port Ewen and a handy application.

Goodness knows there are loads of things to do in Port Ewen and the Town of Esopus. There’s a nearly-1,000-acre park, Shaupeneak Ridge, with miles of trails, a pond, a waterfall, wildlife preserve and, of course, Hudson River and Catskills vistas. Check out the town website for a list of many other wonderful outdoor activities, including the John Burroughs Nature Sanctuary in West Park.

In terms of annual events, the Apple Festival, after 50 years, is a local staple, featuring a town-wide yard sale and, as you might imagine, apple-based treats like apple cider, apple pancakes and apple pie a la mode, plus vendors of handcrafted items, the library book sale and more.

Not as old, but just as popular is the Tugboat Trail, initiated as part of the 2011 Town of Esopus bicentennial events, to commemorate the town’s history as a Hudson River port and the fact that so many townspeople back then worked on tugboats. Each year, miniature tugboats are decorated and displayed along Route 9W and afterwards auctioned to benefit the town; here's a neat document that goes all the way back to those original 2011 tugboats with statements from the artists who made them.

As with so many American small towns, Port Ewen's year is marked by many annual celebrations that bring the community together en masse, amongst them Easter egg hunts, a Halloween festival and a Winter Wonderland parade that attracts thousands. There are baseball, football and summer camps for the kids with arts/crafts and sports at Ross Park, where you’ll also find tennis and basketball courts and sometimes outdoor movies during the summer!

Sounds like a nice place, no?

 

Port Ewen NY Homes

Tilden Street and River Road in Port Ewen are the two that most often come to mind in terms of ideal in-town living on the Hudson River. Sometimes a river town's view is marred by industrial sites on the opposite shore that no one would call "pretty". Happily, this is not one of those places! When we search for your Port Ewen home we might find a house with 250 feet of Hudson River frontage—no railroad tracks below — with views of the river from every room, a boat ramp and deep-water access; like a property that recently sold. Another recently listed Port Ewen riverfront property with sweeping river views featured a deck from which to enjoy the passing Hudson River show and a dock for toe-dipping and boating.
