Quiet, safe, and far removed from the hustle and bustle of modern urban society, Poestenkill is a quaint community located in Rensselaer County, New York, with a population just over 4,500 in 2010. As a "gateway" to the Rensselaer Plateau, we offer residents and visitors a unique opportunity to experience a wealth of outdoor recreation activities and easy access to some of the Plateau's most celebrated state parks, forests, and natural landmarks. Our area is home to a number of unique shops, diverse dining, and community events.

October 09, 2017
On Sunday October 8. 2017 I had the pleasure of presenting Eagle Scouts Gregory Thomas Miller and Christian Ryan Nash with signed copies of two Poestenkill Town Resolutions adopted by the Town Board in recognition of their achievements. Gregory's Eagle Scout project involved the creation and installation of a new sign at the Center Brunswick Cemetery. Christian's project involved the rehabilitation of a trail between Camp Rotary and the Barberville Preserve. Both young men deserve our praise for their dedication to their community.
