Former North Shore Line now converted to North Shore Bike Path.
The unincorporated village of Rondout has the historical significance of being site of the largest train robbery in U.S. history which occurred in 1924, when a gang of robbers known as The Newton Gang robbed a mail train in the village. The amount stolen was an estimated $3 million in cash, bonds and jewelry. To this day, not all of the money has been recovered leading to the legend that it is buried somewhere.
