I don't know why anyone would want to visit Poughkeepsie, nor ride north on route 9 (other than its on the map and heads conveniently north). There's virtually no view of the Hudson, so better route is probably north on 82 after you pass Millbrook.....but then that's just me. Prefer countryside to driving through one town after another (rt. 9).
