Swamp River, Wingdale
The Swamp River is a part of the Great Swamp Watershed, which covers over 6,000 acres in the Harlem Valley and is one of the largest freshwater wetlands in New York. The river roughly parallels the Harlem Line from Pawling to Dover Plains. The depicted postcard scene is just north of the old Wingdale station, where the river runs the closest to the tracks near Pleasant Ridge Road.
