Special events at Cole House & Olana celebrate soon-to-be completed Skywalk

Sunday, Sept. 24: The Hudson River Skywalk on the Rip Van Winkle Bridge will include “bump-outs”: scenic viewing platforms ten feet deep and 50 feet long. The new pedestrian pathway, slated to be completed this November, will allow visitors to walk over the river from one major cultural landmark in the area to another: a direct connection between the Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill and the Olana State Historic Site, just south of Hudson.
