Port Jervis, New York: Tri-States MonumentMarks the meeting point of three states. Probably a big deal in its time, but now it stands forgotten under a freeway overpass.
- E. Main St., Port Jervis, NY
- On the New York side of I-84, exit north onto E. Main St. cross Neversink River and turn left into Laurel Grove Cemetery. Drive and then walk south through the cemetery, all the way under the freeway overpass. The monument will be just beyond, at the water's edge.
- Closes 6 pm.
Visitor Tips and News About Tri-States Monument
Easy to find - parking lot in the back of the cemetery. Closes at 6pm.[Tim Brady, 09/12/2013]
The NY-NJ-PA Tri-State marker is in Port Jervis at the confluence of the Delaware and Neversink rivers. The Monument is located under a bridge for I-84 and you can not see it from the highway. To reach by land, you must drive through the Laurel Grove Cemetery. You can also access from boat from PA or NJ.
Whenever I have the time and am passing through this area, I stop at the monument. It's a very cool hidden gem that few people realize is there even though they drive right over it (on I-84.) I originally found it when I decided to check out the old cemetery and the road through leads right to the monument.[Dmoz, 06/07/2009]
