Rockland Sidepath

Welcome to the Village of South Nyack. Works of art by New York artists can be found at various points along the path and its feeders. You will come upon the first shortly, entitled "Tappan Zee." Created by Long Island City artist Ilan Averbuch, this narrative sculpture pays homage to the American Lenape, the indigenous peoples of the region, and their deep connection to the Hudson River while also referencing the revitalization of the Hudson's ecosystems. A row of seven abstracted figures walk in procession along the Esposito Trail carrying as a canoe on their shoulders. The use of recycled stones that once formed part of another space at another time is itself a story of recycling, recording, and remembering. By sharing in carrying the weight of the stone canoe, the figures symbolize the value of collaboration in crossing rivers, building communities, and reaching new horizons.
