Stuyvesant is located in the northwest corner of Columbia County on the eastern bank of the Hudson River. It is bordered by Rensselaer County to the north, the Town of Kinderhook to the east, and the Town of Stockport to the south.
A town of approximately 2,300 people, Stuyvesant is an agricultural community dotted with single family residences and small businesses. The predominance of farming within the community has left its rural character much the same as it's been for over the last 100 years. Stuyvesant's bucolic landscape belies the fact that it is located less than 20 miles south of the state capital of Albany, New York. Centrally located in the state and the region, the town is approximately two and a half hours from both New York City and Boston.
The Recreation Committee is looking for volunteers to sit on the Committee. There are events coming up over the summer that will need helpers. Come be involved in some fun Town activities. Please contact the Town Clerk's Office at 758-6248 or the Committee Chair, Councilwoman Kelley Williams for additional information.
