If you're looking for an apartment that features convenience in location, there is no better choice than West Shore Towers. The West Shore Towers features a unique blend of urban and suburban life - within easy commuting distance of New York City, yet centered in small-town, quiet, and comfortable Nyack. Frommer's calls Nyack "
One of the more charmingly 'lived-in' river villages along the Lower Hudson, Nyack is a bedroom community of New York with a laid-back life all its own."
  • One mile away from the Tappan Zee Bridge and NY State Thruway
  • Five minutes from Palisades Mall
  • 40 minutes from Times Square (27 miles)
  • Downtown Nyack within walking distance


Within walking distance are almost two dozen outstanding restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, and other eating establishments. What follows is an incomplete list (click on website for menus and more information): 


Nyack and nearby Piermont are known for their outstanding selection of fine clothing and boutique gift shops in a fantastic setting. A spotlight list of outstanding stores can be found here at shopnyack.com. The Palisades Center, America's 10th largest shopping mall, is only two and a half miles away. It features four levels of stores, dining, and entertainment, including movies, an ice rink, and IMAX theatre. While the shops and stores in downtown Nyack are all within walking distance, the mall is accessable by public transportation (see below).

Culture and Arts

Nyack offers much in the way of culture. In addition to the rich history of the surrounding area, Nyack itself features several excellent attractions. The Edward Hopper House Art Center is a dynamic multi-arts center featuring art exhibitions, programs, events, and musical performances for both adults and children throughout the year. The Rockland Symphony Orchestra performs often at Riverspace Arts at 119 Main Street. The village was a common stop of the Underground Railroad.

Memorial Park is literally four tenths of a mile from our beautiful location, only seven minutes by foot. The park features a children's playground and a butterfly garden. Canoes and kayaks can be launched from the park into the Hudson River. The park also hosts a weekly music concert series in the summer as well as outdoor movies.

The Mountainview Nature Park is a natural preserve run by Rockland County features excellent hiking for a weekend getaway (trail map, here). The entrance to the park is only 1.9 miles from our apartments. Hook Mountain State Park, a part of the Palisades Interstate Park System, is north of our location. It features almost 700 acres of wildlife, and is particularly renowned as a bird watching site. Just  15 miles away is the famous Bear Mountain State Park, which has something for everyone. Excellent hiking, picnic sites, an ice-skating rink, zoo, and several lakes can be found here and it's sister park, Harriman State Park
