Get to know Piermont

Located about a half hour northwest of New York City, Piermont is a charming riverfront village in the Rockland municipality of Orangetown, referred to by some as “Hollywood on the Hudson” for its impressive concentration of low-key, high-profile residents. Its scenic, small-but-mighty downtown is popular for its wide array of quaint cafes and fine riverfront dining indoors and, in season, out. Piermont is equally prime for outdoor recreation, from its more mountainous inland terrain to the ecologically-rich marshland that skirts the riverfront. Eleanor Stroud Park is a favorite venue for seasonal ice skating, and Tallman Mountain State Park, located across a century-old, hand-cranked drawbridge, boasts trails for hiking, walking, cross-country skiing, and more. Whether catching live music at The Turning Point or paddling the bird sanctuary on a kayak, you’ll realize instantly why so many choose this delightful suburb to live who they are.

Living in Rockland County

Set along the west shore of the Hudson above Bergen County, New Jersey, and across the Tappan Zee from Westchester, suburban Rockland accounts for the smallest county in New York State and its third most densely-populated within the NYC metro—the straight line distance from its southernmost tip to city limits is just six miles. True to its name, the area boasts a rugged landscape framed by the Ramapo Mountains and the Palisades, shared by five towns, 19 villages, and countless hamlets. They’re well-connected by the New York State Thruway, Palisades Parkway, and Metro-North’s Port Jervis and Pascack Valley lines, which operate over NJ Transit to Hoboken (or Penn Station, with transfer) rather than Grand Central. Unlike the east shore, Rockland’s tracks primarily run inland, blessing its riverfront homes with unobstructed water access. Thanks to railroad baron E.H. Harriman, the county’s northernmost reaches are preserved as Bear Mountain/Harriman State Park, a natural wonder drawing countless visitors year-round.
