Get in[edit]

By air[edit]

  • Stewart International Airport (IATA: SWF), 1180 First St, New Windsor, +1 845 564-2100, [2]. Lands you right in Orange County, but at present offers few direct flights.
  • Newark Liberty International Airport, Newark, New Jersey, [3], John F. Kennedy International Airport [4], and LaGuardia Airport [5]: The three major international airports in the New York City area offer service to just about anywhere.

By rail[edit]

  • Metro-North offers service on its Port Jervis line with service from Hoboken NJ through Secaucus Junction NJ, Suffern NY and Middletown NY to Port Jervis NY, contracted with NJ Transit. Transfer at Secaucus Junction from trains from Manhattan, Newark or Trenton, or transfer from PATH at Hoboken Terminal. Amtrak trains don't stop at Secaucus Junction, so one will need to transfer to NJ Transit trains at New York or Newark for that. Ferries are available from World Financial Center and Wall Street ports to the Hoboken Terminal port (right next to the train station).
