The Hudson River has inspired generations of writers and artists, including Washington Irving, America’s first writer to earn his living as an author, and Jasper Cropsey, one of the best-known painters of the Hudson River School. The Clearwater Festival has been held at Croton Point for many years celebrating the river through art and music.
