Ferry service between Beacon and Newburgh is suspended indefinately, because the Hudson freezes up during the winter.  They will be running buses from both parking lots for commuters who take the ferry.  Bus times are posted at

Maybe if it freezes solid we can ice sail like they do up in Tivoli Bay?  This guys trip didn't work out so good!
