Quotes:
West Point is Nature's Northern Gate to New York City. As soon as our rail-trains shall equal those of England, and travel fifty or sixty miles an hour, the Hudson, as far as West Point, will be but a fifty-mile extension of Broadway.
-- The Home Book of the Picturesque, 1851
Nathaniel P. Willis

But I have another complaint to make against the authorities of West Point?What right can they have to take the very prettiest spot on the Hudson -- the prettiest spot on the continent -- one of the prettiest spots which Nature, with all her vagaries, ever formed -- and shut it up from all the world for purposes of war?
-- North America
Anthony Trollope
