Bridging yourself to this safe, strong, and affordable community will ensure that your journey provides a healthy work/life balance. The small city of Amsterdam nurtures a sense of community that is evident in its own breathtaking and award-winning bridge opened in 2016 to connect the southside neighborhoods to downtown’s revitalized waterfront district.
At first glance, the Mohawk Valley Gateway Overlook is a pedestrian bridge, but a closer look reveals that this winding, ornate structure is actually an elevated park suspended over the swirling waters of the Mohawk River. With benches, stunning professional artwork, flower gardens, and designated gathering spaces, the overlook has quickly become the heart of Amsterdam. It is a regular meeting place for yoga classes, walking programs, kayak tours, and sunset-viewing parties.
The overlook connects to Riverlink Park, with its popular playground, boat dock, and the River’s Edge Café. Summer brings to the park a concert series of eclectic music. In the fall, Amsterdam celebrates Italiafest with live music, local food, and a spaghetti-eating contest. The German-themed Oktoberfest draws crowds with its biergarten, stein hoisting, and a costume contest.
Amsterdam’s four seasons will keep you busy all year long with outdoor activities that range from cycling to boating to skiing. You may play a round of golf at the municipal golf course and then explore the adjoining bird sanctuary via the Sassafras Hiking Trail.
Amsterdam is 35 miles from Albany, 180 from NYC, 200 from Boston, and 215 from Montreal. The nearby Adirondacks offer a quick and scenic retreat. The proximity to these great locations adds convenience to the comfort you will find in this warm and welcoming hometown.
When building your bridge, don’t settle for a utilitarian overpass connecting one congested interstate to another. Make yours a scenic walkway of tulip gardens and mosaics. Call Marty Blevins today at 512-422-6766 and send your CV to Marty@urologyrecruiting.com to cross the bridge into Amsterdam.
