Piermont doesn't hide its gritty, blue-collar history. A century-old flywheel, which supplied power to factories in the village until 1983, is displayed as sculpture in the village's park. Art is what helped establish Piermont as a destination for visitors; many galleries surround Flywheel Park, which has a clear view of the Hudson River and the Tappan Zee Bridge. Nowadays shops and restaurants have filled the void that industry left, and the downtown thrives with day-trippers as well as residents doing errands or enjoying a night out with friends.
