Perched on the western border of Orange County along the scenic upper Delaware River, Port Jervis retains its rural roots in this corner of the country where New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey meet near the confluence of the Delaware River and its largest tributary, the Neversink River. Attracted by the area's natural beauty — including the scenic Hawk's Nest section of New York Route 97 — thousands of visitors canoe, raft and kayak down the Delaware River each year. This same region is a popular fishing spot and is graced with American Bald Eagles that can be observed from public viewing areas, particularly during the winter months.
About a 90-minute drive from New York City, Port Jervis was once an important railroad center and still has one of the region's few remaining steam-engine turntables. Today, commuter rail service to points east and south, including New York City, is provided by New Jersey Transit. Additional connections can be made by Amtrak and other connectors including bus.
About 25 miles outside of Port Jervis is the famous Sugar Loaf Art and Craft Village, a community of creative crafts people and artists with a distinguished reputation going back 250 years. Today, Sugar Loaf remains true to its heritage as the home of over 60 art studios, craft shops, galleries and restaurants, all located in the original barns and buildings dating back to the 1700s and 1800s.
