 Each end of the road at New York City and Albany was a nexus of other significant migration routes. The Albany Post Road along the east side of the Hudson River was about 150 miles (241 km) long.
In 1669 the government of New Netherland designated a postal road from New Amsterdam (New York City) to Beverwijck (Albany). It followed older trails of the Wiccoppe and Wappinger Indian tribes on the east side of the Hudson River.
