Andre’s Landing Place at Haverstraw


The landing spot, long held in a local sort of ill repute, was very little known 100 years after the revolution. This is another extremely significant location in the Long Clove. Just below the Long Clove Road tunnel, access is from the old quarry/campground path to the north, or from the stream on the south.


Below is an article written by Lavalette Wilson of the Mountain Institute in the Magazine of American History, January-June 1885 that describes in great detail the location and has what is a one of a kind map of the Long Clove.

It seems Mr. Wilson was able to clear the air as to the location, movements, and landmarks of Arnold and Andre that night. Today there is a boulder that has been inscribed with the details at the waters edge.
