ABOUT US + THE VILLAGE OF WAPPINGERS FALLS
Hudson Valley Compass works closely with the Village of Wappingers (#Wappingersrises) continuously updating this one-stop comprehensive resource for all things related to, and within the vicinity of, the Village of Wappinger’s Falls, New York.
60 miles north of Manhattan, on the east shore of the Hudson River, is a small, but historically significant tributary known as the Wappinger Creek. A few thousand feet upstream lies Wappingers Falls- named after the native American tribes who originally inhabited the region. Rich in culture and diversity- this small locality was founded upon and continues in its tradition of hard work, the entrepreneurial spirit, and the common good.
The Village of Wappingers Falls is located along US Route 9 directly between the cities of Beacon and Poughkeepsie, just 2 miles from Metro Norths New Hamburg Station (90 minutes from Grand Central Terminal-Hudson River Line).
Whether you live here, work here, or are just visiting… our hope is that this platform will help inspire everyone to interact with and invest in one another as well as the future of the Village of Wappingers Falls!
Wappingers Rises was created as a means of bringing the community together after the East Main St fires in 2017. The fires erupted the morning of our very first Festival at the Falls organized by The Village. We recently supported the community through the fires of Feb 2020 on Market Street. We will continue to grow stronger, come together, and rise from the ashes.
Stay with us through the progress. All signs are indicating that this village is in the early stages of a true “Revival” period: As of February 2018, six new businesses have opened their doors in the last 3 months, another 3-4 are anticipated shortly, the Planning Board is reviewing a record number of applications for new businesses and building renovations, construction projects that have been on hold for years are now coming back to life, real estate professionals are reporting escalated interest in both commercial and residential properties, and the village streets and shops are coming alive with visible activity from long-time residents, newcomers, and visitors alike.
