Stuyvesant is located in the northwest corner of Columbia County on the eastern bank of the Hudson River. It is bordered by Rensselaer County to the north, the Town of Kinderhook to the east, and the Town of Stockport to the south.
A town of approximately 2,300 people, Stuyvesant is an agricultural community dotted with single family residences and small businesses. The predominance of farming within the community has left its rural character much the same as it's been for over the last 100 years. Stuyvesant's bucolic landscape belies the fact that it is located less than 20 miles south of the state capital of Albany, New York. Centrally located in the state and the region, the town is approximately two and a half hours from both New York City and Boston.
There has been a link added to the "Links of Interest" for information and FAQs relating to the Dewey Loeffel Landfill and the Valatie Kill.
As I have been kept busy with Town and County issues, it is now past time for an updated newsletter. Here are some highlights from the last several months of local government.
Last June the town once again hosted “Big Truck Day” which is sponsored by the Kinderhook Library. It was for the second year a great success. The event is scheduled again for this year on June 21st 2014, hope you will all plan to join us.
