The waterfront promenade, currently stretching from Warren Avenue to the old chair factory peninsula and from the edge of the Tilcon rock quarry to the ferry landing, is about to grow. The Village will connect the two sections of the promenade and effectively double the walkway in length. By receiving a grant from the State of New York in 2008, the Village will spend roughly $1 Million on improvements to the existing sections and filling in the gap. When complete, the promenade will extend from the Harbors at Haverstraw, along the ferry landing, through Emeline Park, around the old chair factory, and through to Warren Avenue where it will eventually connect to the Bowline Point recreation area.

I’ve always written here that true health and permanent weight loss is a matter of changing your lifestyle. In the suburbs, it is often difficult to stay in shape since we are so reliant on cars to get around. If you live in a place like Haverstraw, then there are opportunities to stay active without ever having to get in your car. The community is walkable, and you can get a lot of what you need within walking distance. That is the true strength of walkable communities – they are healthy communities.
