Riparius is a hamlet in the Upper Hudson River Valley of Warren County, New York, United States.[1] Riparius was formerly known as Riverside until the state changed the name to prevent confusion with several other places of the same name. "Riparius" is a Latin equivalent for "Riverside". Riparius is located within the towns of Johnsburg and Chester.

Riparius is currently the terminus of the Upper Hudson River Railroad, a tourist train which departs from North Creek during summer months. The "Riverside Station" is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[2]
