Croton River Gallery



The Croton River is a uniquely beautiful place and is a spawning area for anadromous fish like shad and striped bass. It provided shellfish and fish to the native americans living on both its Ossining and Croton shores as early as 6000 years ago. More recently, it was the heart of the Van Cortlandt empire providing food, transportation to New York City markets, and power to run the mills. Currently, the Croton River is there for all to enjoy.
