Visit New York, New Jersey, And Pennsylvania In The Hudson Valley
According to Scenic Wild Delaware River
The Tri-States Monument also known as the Tri-State Rock allows guests to visit New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania while visiting Port Jervis, NY.
During the 1880s, this monument was placed. It,
"serves as the northern end of New Jersey's boundary with Pennsylvania, and the northwest end of the New York/ New Jersey boundary line- where the Neversink and Delaware Rivers converge. It sits at the water's edge at the southwestern edge of a peninsula. The 3 lines cut designate the state boundaries of NY, NJ, and PA."
"In truth, the actual corner between NY & PA is in the middle of the Delaware River - about 475 feet due west of the Tri-State Rock. The nearby Witness Monument, located under the overpass, relates that information."
