Welcome to New York! US 6/US 209 enters the state from Pennsylvania on a bridge over the Delaware River. Here, it is known as Pike Street. There is no state line crossing sign, so motorists who don't know the area won't necessarily know that they've crossed into a new state.

US 6/US 209 passes through a tunnel under the Port Jervis Line of the Metro-North Railroad. There are signs welcoming motorists to the City of Port Jervis and Orange County, but there is still no mention of New York State.
