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 town is home to a number of unique shops, diverse dining, and community events.

Letter from the Supervisor,

Whether you have lived in Poestenkill your whole life, are a recent resident or seeking to become a resident, we hope that you will find our website helpful. I know that our folks at Town Hall are always willing and happy to serve and assist you. Our community is proud of our small town atmosphere and our special heritage anchored in agriculture and forest products. We are proud to be a "Right to Farm" community that has enjoyed modest growth without sacrificing our small town feel and ample open spaces.


Do you have a question? Can't find something on the website? Or have a suggestion on how this site can better serve the public? Stop by our historic Town Hall, give me a call or send me an email, I would love to hear from you.
