2009 New York City Plane Crash Live - US Airways Plane Crashes Into The Hudson River
To travel the Hudson Valley in New York, is to see a Hudson Valley of farmers’ markets everywhere, like this one in Kingston across the river
Hudson Valley, New York, has colorful cafes and pizza joints And of course the mighty, lovely Hudson Valley runs through the Hudson Valley where small, sleepy villages line its banks.
This is the Hudson River Valley.
But don’t let the easy pace fool you
There are interesting inns like the quirky, historic and quite charming Rheincliff Inn or the sprawling old Beekman Arms dating back to 1766
But the Hudson valley has shinning examples of contemporary art like the futuristic Frank Gerry designed Center for the Performing Arts at off beat Bard College
And whimsical touches that give these towns a unique character and flavor.
And if you’re talking unique Hudson Valley attractions, how abut the Vanderbilt Mansion, the house Frederick and Louise built back in America’s Gilded Age
But at the end of the day it’s the beauty of the river and the sky and the hills of the Hudson Valley that bring visitors back to this place of tranquility and small town Americana

Capt. Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger said that in the few minutes he had to decide where to set down the powerless plane Thursday afternoon, he felt it was "too low, too slow" and near too many buildings to go anywhere else, according to the National Transportation Safety Board account of his testimony.
The pilot and his first officer provided their first account to NTSB investigators Saturday of what unfolded inside US Airways Flight 1549 in the moments after it slammed into a flock of birds and lost both engines.
Co-pilot Jeff Skiles, who was flying the plane, saw the birds coming in perfect formation, and made note of it. Sullenberger looked up, and in an instant his windscreen was filled with big, dark-brown birds.
"His instinct was to duck," said NTSB board member Kitty Higgins, recounting their interview. Then there was a thump, the smell of burning birds, and silence as both aircraft engines cut out.
The account illustrated how quickly things deteriorated after the bump at 3,000 feet, and their fast realization that returning to LaGuardia or getting to another airport was impossible.

All 155 survive plane crash in NYC's Hudson River
NEW YORK (AP) — A US Airways pilot ditched his disabled jetliner into the frigid Hudson River on Thursday afternoon after a collision with a flock of birds apparently knocked out both engines, but rescuers pulled all 155 people on board into boats as the plane sank, authorities say.
Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Laura Brown said Flight 1549 had just taken off from LaGuardia Airport en route to Charlotte, N.C., when the crash occurred in the river near 48th Street in midtown Manhattan.
The plane, an Airbus 320, took off at 3:26 p.m. and went down minutes later, Brown said.
Associated Press writers Eileen Sullivan and Michael J. Sniffen in Washington and Harry R. Weber in Atlanta contributed to this report.

Hudson Valley Travel-Rhinecliff Inn, Hudson Valley Travel Video Review
As far as we know there’s nothing like it in the Hudson Valley.
The Rhinecliff Inn is in a small, sleepy, NY village of the same name,
The Rhinecliff Inn in Rhinecliff, Neww York, in the Hudson Valley sits right on top of the Hudson River, the rolling river that dominates any stay at this historic one time
Indeed the only thing that separates the Rhinecliff Inn from the river is the railroad track and antique tressle, so you better love the sound of a train at night.
I do! But if you don’t, the Rhinecliff Inn offer ear plugs with a smile.
British born brothers James and David Chapman reclaimed the best of the old 1854 Rhinecliff hotel, and transformed its very blue collar past
into a unique and up scale botique inn and hotel.
The Rhinecliffs biggest calling card may be The Bar restaurant,
The pub dining experience scoops up the best local ingredients,
‘nods’ to some british favorites, and bustles on the weekends.
It also serves up a breakfast as hearty or lite as a house guest might please (or like)
We’re eager to re-visit the Rhinecliff Inn to see how the devoted staff has tweeked some of the creature comforts, catch a summer breeze off the Hudson, and a summer sweet train whistle at night at the Rhinecliff Inn
