Bear Mountain, once home to Native Americans and early settlers, had evolved by the 20th century into one of the nation’s most outstanding public parks. Threatened by quarrying operations and the relocation of Sing Sing Prison, this integral section of the Hudson Highlands was saved by the combined efforts of local citizens and the Palisades Interstate Park Commission. Graced by a deep, picturesque lake at the foot of the mountain and accessible by riverboat, train, and automobile, Bear Mountain State Park became a playground for New York City residents. Visionary park management enabled the park to expand, encompassing nature exhibits, a zoo, camps, and restaurants. It continues to be a year-round recreation center featuring hiking, boating, swimming, and cross-country skiing.

Photo and printing quality is low quality but no worse than any other books of this same genre. Interesting factoids and history on Bear Mountain. No much meat, but enough sizzle to make it a worthwhile browse.

Bought this book for my mom since my grandfather has an image and is mentioned within the book's history.

Good overview of the parks history. I think Harriman's ownership and role and the politics of the day should modify those paragraphs ( small observation )

I sent this to my Dad since he grew up in the area and his Dad was a Bear Mountain cop. We have heard stories about Bear Mountain all our lives. Dad loved the book and read it in a few hours. Mom loved the book. They asked me to send copies to my brothers, who loved the book. Dad has his own stories and memories to add to the book and will write them in the borders for me. If you have any connection to Bear Mountain or just interested in the area, this book is for you.
