One hundred years ago, the city of Poughkeepsie wasa bustling marketplace for the mid-Hudson Valley,while the town of Poughkeepsie was essentially rural and substantially smaller than the city. Two world wars and the arrival of IBM reversed the roles, at least in part. The town grew larger than the city and soon became the center of retail business for the county. Four- and six-lane highways replacedtrolleys and trains. The city, however, remained the center of county government.

Poughkeepsie has also been enhanced by the contributions of its African American community and by successive waves of immigrants seeking a better life. Images of America (Arcadia Publishing). From hosting New York's United States Constitutional Ratification Convention in 1788 to becoming the location of IBM during World War II, Poughkeepsie has continued to be the site of world-changing events.

As a former resident of Poughkeepsie, I was enthralled by the imagery set forth in this book. I feel every former resident of this city
will enjoy this book. I do feel that the authors should have included data or photos honoring the many "apple knockers" who
perished in WW II.

I thoroughly enjoyed Poughkeepsie, NY: Halfway up the Hudson! Despite little detail about the last 40 years, it is an impressive pictoral history of an oft-maligned city. Existing in the shadows of New York City and Albany, Po-Town has earned its share of now documented historical importance; and this book.
