The Palisades Interstate Parkway and Henry Hudson Drive have been designated a “Scenic Byway.”

Palisades Scenic Byway

Vision

To preserve, protect, and promote the Palisades Interstate Parkway and Henry Hudson Drive as beautiful scenic drives and significant attractions within the magnificent natural setting of the Palisades Interstate Park, whose founding mission was for the protection of the Palisades cliffs for the enjoyment of future generations; and to relate the contributions and importance of the byway corridor to the history of the Revolutionary War and to the rise of the American conservation movement and regional planning that led to the protection of land and historic sites for the benefit of the public.
