Detailed Property Info


The Village of Athens in Greene County provides the setting for sixteen lushly wooded acres with 701' of waterfront on the Hudson River. The property is situated just north of the Village proper, bounded by a New York State Freshwater Wetland to the south, New York State Route 385 to the west, Brick Row Road/Extension to the north and the Hudson River to the east.

Access to the Athens property by land is provided via Exit 21B of Interstate 87 to Star Route 385 to Brick Row Extension. The Athens property can also be easily accessed by water via Hager's Harbor dock located adjacent to the north property line.

Sloping gradually towards the River, the Athens property is heavily wooded, with the exception of a small pond located near the river, close to the southern property line and adjacent to the New York State Freshwater Wetland. The pond demonstrates the rich biotic community along the banks of the Hudson River, including numerous frog, birds and aquatic plants.

Currently zoned Open Space/Conservation under the Village of Athens Zoning Ordinance, the location of the Athens property relative to other valuable environmental and recreational assets further supports continued preservation of this valuable resource along the Hudson River.

Just south of the Athens property, the State of New York recently made significant improvements to the boat launch, increasing public access and use of the area for both boating access to the Hudson as well as fishing opportunities on the overflow creek from Sleepy Hollow Creek.


----------

Across the creek from the boat launch is a designated wetland under public control. The Village has constructed a ball field, walking trail and general recreational space upland of the wetland.

The Athens property offers undeveloped open space and ecological resources, as well as scenic views of the east side of the Hudson in Columbia County. The view of the Athens property from the River is unspoiled, an important feature given the industrial development and aging facilities located at the waterfront within the Village of Athens proper.

An opportunity exists to connect the improved State boat launch with the wetland area.  The village's recreational area and the listed 16 acre Athens parcel, to create a continuous district to resource conservation, open apace and recreation.
