Anthony's Nose
Cortlandt

    900-foot mountain on the east bank of the Hudson River is thought to have been named in the 1600s after the prominent nose of Antoine de Hooges, secretary of the Rensselaerswyck colony at Albany. Bear Mountain Bridge was built from the base of the mountain across the Hudson in 1923, the world's longest suspension bridge at that time.
