As we all know, winter is a time of hibernation and renewal. It allows us to rest and restore during the cooler months. Many of us feel as if we can slow down and be still in the Winter.

Some of us may be enjoying the season as we sip on our favorite warm beverage, curl up with a warm blanket and favorite book or participate in outdoor, winter activities.

As some are resting, others are thinking ahead and working behind the scenes to make things happen for the upcoming, warmer seasons.

Midnight Ferry has explained how they got their one-of-a-kind name. With all of my history of the Hudson Valley, I have never heard this story. According to Midnight Ferry, They explained that the idea behind this name came from a story. They explained it as the Newburgh Beacon ferry got stuck on ice as it was traveling across the Hudson River.

Even though those who were on the ferry weren't able to go anywhere, they made the best of it. As the story is told, they enjoyed each other's company along with food, together on the ferry until they were able to be rescued.

Midnight Ferry announced that they will be making changes to their location. 

They made the following announcement on their Instagram page,

"While it’s a little chilly, we’re going to be using the time to expand from our cute little window into a cute little dessert bar! We will have a small amount of indoor seating with extended patio seating for those beautiful spring/summer/fall days."

Midnight Ferry also explained that they will be putting their time and energy into this new project for the warmer days. They will not have their Friday window service and pick-ups for pints.

Midnight Ferry shared that they are excited to open a dessert bar on the bar side of the building.
They're building a 400 square foot deck which will overlook the beautiful Hudson River. Soon enough, they'll have a separate menu and table service available.

This brand new experience is coming to the Newburgh Waterfront just in time for the warmer months. Friends, families and couples can enjoy their time at Midnight Ferry with a snack, dessert and even a cocktail.

However, if guests are looking for some cookies, cakes or ice cream at an event, be sure to contact Midnight Ferry.
