24 Hours in Piermont

Rockland County is home to many small towns, but in a sea of small-town charm, Piermont holds its own as one of the best for visitors. Nestled along the western banks of the majestic Hudson River, slightly south of the Tappan Zee Bridge (Mario Cuomo Bridge), Piermont has something to offer every kind of visitor. Here are a few favorites.

At the end of the main strip, turn onto Ash Street and head towards the beautiful Flywheel Park to enjoy views of the Mario Cuomo Bridge and learn a little bit of history surrounding the Flywheel.

A family-owned restaurant since 1981, Confetti’s offers authentic Italian food and a stacked bar. The Carbonara Pizza on the brunch menu is a must-try! For classic American food, specialty cocktails or craft beer, stop at the Rivertown Taphouse to enjoy the latest sports game at the bar and indulge in a good wholesome meal. If you want to DIY your meal or change up your dining atmosphere, stop by TWK Community Market on Piermont Ave for lunch.
