With winter and snow bearing down on us, the Highway Department requests that if you regularly park your car on a town road, it be moved in the event of a snowstorm prior to the roads needing to be plowed.
This small act wll help keep the roads safe for everyone all winter. Thank you for your assistance.
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.

Lincoln Funeral Train Events
While our Highway department staff has been working overtime keeping our Town roads cleared, and those who have not traveled south are just trying to keep warm, we have had a very active group of volunteers meeting and planning events to commemorate some important American History. The Lincoln Funeral Train Committee has grown out our Town’s Railroad Restoration Committee and now includes the City of Hudson, and other communities.
