Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park
The Walkway Over the Hudson is a State Historical Park, which was originally a railway bridge over the Hudson River and built-in 1889. The bridge was taken out of service in 1974 and joined the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. The bridge was designated and upgraded in 2009 as the Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park. The bridge is extremely popular, hosting almost 600,000 visitors in 2017. It is the world's second-longest pedestrian footbridge – 6768 feet.
The footbridge connects the Hudson Valley Rail Trail to the Dutchess Rail Trail. The Walkway is part of the New York State Park System, opens at 7 am, and closes at dusk. There is a parking charge, and there are restrooms available at each end of the Walkway. Cyclists and walkers are welcome, and the Walkway is relatively wheelchair-free, and dogs must be kept on a leash.

Mold Inspections, Remediation, and Removal in High Humidity Areas
Many bathrooms are poorly ventilated and, combined with warm moist air, provide the perfect conditions for mold infestations to form. The bathroom may not be equipped with an exhaust fan, or residents forget to open a window while taking a shower. Mold can appear on ceilings inside on the top of the shower and other areas of the bathroom.
Mold removal must be accomplished carefully in Poughkeepsie homes to avoid releasing spores into the air. Plastic containment sheets may be required to prevent mold from spreading to uncontaminated areas.
Once we establish containment, we focus on mold removal:
- We remove mold from Porous materials
- HEPA vacuuming or detergent solutions are used on nonporous materials.
- Heavy concentrations may require removal if structural integrity is compromised.
