The birthplace of 32nd president, Franklin D. Roosevelt, is as famous as the man, himself. Abounding with historic sites such as Roosevelt's home, the Vanderbilt Mansion, Eleanor Roosevelt's Val-Kill, the Hyde Park Train Station and a host of others can afford visitors many outdoor amenities, as well as historical education. Mills-Norrie State Park is famous with bicycle paths, cross-country skiing, winter sledding, fishing, forest land, nature trails, and open fields. However, to leave Hyde Park with a venerated taste in one's mouth is to visit the world's premier culinary college, The Culinary Institute of America, for an unsurpassed epicurean adventure. COMPRISED OF: Hamlets of Hyde Park, East Park, Staatsburg; the village of West Park across the river in Ulster County, the communities of Haviland and Norrie Heights.
