A Tank Away

Culinary delights and presidential might in Hyde Park, N.Y.

Tucked in a scenic section of New York’s Hudson Valley, Hyde Park looks like a quaint little town, a place for a quick stop off New York’s busy Route 9. But its majestic mansions, fascinating history, culinary creations, and bucolic beauty entice visitors to give this riverside community 90 miles north of New York City a longer look.

Known primarily as the home of our 32d president, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Hyde Park is also home to the Culinary Institute of America, the Vanderbilt Mansion, and the Eleanor Roosevelt national historic site. Dining, cultural, and outdoor recreational opportunities here are second to none.
