Map


Getting here

Land

Constellation is visible from both sides of the Hudson River, with recommended viewing areas:

On the east side of the Hudson, you will find the viewing area near the Breakneck train stop near Beacon, NY, a short walk off of State Route 9D. Follow the posted Constellation signs. See map below. Bring a flashlight!  View from the footbridge… or walk over the bridge and take the little path to view from the shore if the tide allows!

Please note that this is NOT the location of the Constellation tour boat departure dock. Directions to the dock can be found here

On the west side of the Hudson, check out the view from the Kowawese Unique Area at Plum Point.

Pollepel Island with the Bannerman Castle Ruin is part of the beautiful Hudson Highlands State Park. For information about hiking trails click here or here for links to trail maps

For the area closest to the Constellation, look for the NORTH Hudson Highlands trail map

Train

See fantastic views of Constellation without even getting out of your seat!

The project can be seen directly from the windows of the Metro-North Hudson train car, looking toward the river between the Cold Spring and Beacon Stations. Visit the official viewing area near the Breakneck Ridge, just follow the posted Constellation signs. There is limited weekend-only service between Grand Central and the Breakneck Ridge station on the Hudson.

For Constellation boat tours operated by The Bannerman Castle Trust, take the Metro-North Hudson Line to Beacon Station. Meet for your tour at the Beacon Institute Dock (first dock as you drive down to waterfront on the left).  Beacon Institute Dock is just south of the Newburgh-Beacon Ferry Dock across from the train station.
