What’s near: Stewart International Airport?

This seems handy:

Stewart International Airport (SWF) in New York’s Hudson Valley is close to a good many historic and cultural sites you can now find out about from an interactive map on the Web site of the Port Authority of NY & NJ, which now runs this airport.


The airport portion of the map is pretty straightforward (it’s a small airport), but you can also click on the environs page and get links to sites for sports, wineries, shopping malls, theaters, historic mansions, museums, performing arts centers, and other attractions in the region – stretching from New York State, east to the Connecticut border and west to the Pennsylvania and New Jersey borders.


For example, from looking at the map, I learned that Stewart International Airport, in New Windsor, is only about seven miles from Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site, the country’s first publicly owned historic site.
