Center of Modena at junction of routes 44/55 and 32.

Modena is a hamlet in Ulster County, New York, United States. It is located in the northwestern corner of the town of Plattekill, centered at the junction of the US 44/NY 55 concurrency and NY 32.


The area was first settled in the late 17th century and was originally called "Clark's Corner". The name was changed to Modena in 1829,[1] and the hamlet was named for either the Italian city of Modena[2] or for Mary of Modena, the new wife of James II. In turn, the service area nearby on the southbound New York State Thruway was named after the hamlet.

It has long been a primarily rural community with minimal development, although that has been changing enough for Hannaford to build one of its supermarkets on Route 32 just south of the junction.
