Port Jervis Walks from the New Jersey Transit Train Platform
at the Port Jervis train platform a fast food restaurant is located
nearby. If facing toward the train and tracks the Delaware River and
State of Pennsylvania lie a few blocks away.
|Front Street||Sussex Street||The Delaware River|
Front Street runs the length of the downtown Port Jervis retail business area. Along this route is a unique gift store, antique dealers, barber shops, and restaurants. If walking the full distance of the downtown area - about one-quarter mile - the historic Erie Depot stands at its far end. A short distance further on is an art gallery.
1) After exiting the train platform turn to the right
heading in the direction the train just came from.
|Sussex Street is the financial and governmental
area of Port Jervis. Banks, the post office, and the municipal
building are found here. A walk to the top of Sussex Street arrives
at Orange Square Veterans' Memorial Park and its 60 ton monument erected
in 1886 to honor veterans of the American Civil War. Across Sussex Street from the
park is a Methodist church and rectory associated with writer, poet, and
newspaper war correspondent, Stephen Crane.
On the opposite side of the park is Pike Street, a main thoroughfare that on
its way back toward Front Street passes by the 1903 Port Jervis Free Library
that was endowed by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie.
1) Follow steps 1 through 5 to Front Street.
The Delaware River serves as a dividing line between Port Jervis, NY, and Matamoras, PA. The Mid-Delaware bridge crossing the river provides a scenic view of the valley and New Jersey where a stone monument seen on a mountain top four miles away marks the highest point in that state. The sharp bend in the river downstream from the bridge is near where the Neversink River joins the Delaware and the states of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania meet. Along this route is a popular restaurant as well as an ice cream and dessert parlor. Also in this area is an asphalt walking trail that follows the river to the city's West End Beach.
