It’s easy to dismiss important landmarks as normal when you pass them every day. But why not take the time to appreciate your hometown history? The guidebook Look Up, Hudson Valley! — part of the Look Up, America! series published by Cruden Bay Books — feature walking tours of six Valley cities (Albany, Troy, Hudson, Newburgh, Poughkeepsie, and Kingston, as well as Schenectady and Saratoga Springs).
For $2.99, you can download the E-book to your E-reader or mobile device, and follow the detailed walking or driving directions; the tours take you past historical, cultural, and architectural landmarks and explain their significance to the town — like the spot where Troy earned its nickname “The Collar City” or Newburgh’s historic waterfront. If you only have time for one city, they are each available individually for $0.99.
