Trophy Point, Poughkeepsie Reviews - Write a Review

  • Amazing place to visit, beautiful structures, buildings and sceneries.

  • View from Garrison, West Point, New York by David Johnson (1827-1908) As a rule, Johnson's paintings up and down the Hudson River had a featureless sky; but also always showed the magnificent bounty of the land below

  • I wonder what the stones are for
