Location & Access

Location, Location, Location

There’s really no other way to say it. As the northernmost suburb of New York City, Dutchess County’s strategic location ensures closeness to major consumer markets, robust industries and top talent, without our competitors’ extraordinary operating costs.

Thanks to its major transportation corridors, Dutchess County provides convenient supply chain access, which has attracted multinational companies like Gap, Inc. For corporate executives, Dutchess County’s Hudson Valley Regional Airport offers convenient, cost-effective access to Manhattan and other East Coast hubs without the ground delays experienced at other New York metropolitan-area airports.

Who says location matters? We do. Dutchess County’s location at the heart of the BosWash Corridor, combined with its distinct natural resources and historical character, is one of the top reasons why businesses and people call Dutchess County home.
