Generally: New Hackensack Road runs through a few towns.
We are in the town of Poughkeepsie on New Hackensack Road,
not Wappingers Falls. To make matters worse, New Hackensack Road
is also known as Route 376 and becomes Hooker Avenue in the city
of Poughkeepsie. We are around the corner from Vassar College
and are exactly 1 mile east of Cedar Avenue on Route 376.
Below are specific directions.
