Looking for a quick escape from the pushy, sweaty sidewalks of NYC? A beautiful trip to Cold Spring, a small village in southeastern NY state, is just a quick train ride away!

Take the MTA North and be sure to sit on the left side to enjoy breathtaking views of the Hudson.

The train lets you off at the foot of Main Street, home to great local eateries and fresh shops. I love Archipelago, a combination of antiques and kitschy (but cool) gifts. Ask for David the owner and tell him that Patti says hi!
