The Taconic State Parkway runs north/south along the eastern part of the town. The entire highway, including its supporting structures, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. New York State Route 199 runs east/west through the town of Milan—going to Red Hook and over the Kingston–Rhinecliff Bridge to the west.

Milan NY is in western part of the Little Nine Partners Patent of 1706. Milan was largely a farming and mill town and remains a very rural town today. The New York State Legislature voted on March 6, 1818 to create the town of Milan from the western part of the Town of North East. The main thoroughfares for the community ran from the Hudson River to Salisbury, CT, which was known as the Salisbury Turnpike.

In addition to farming and local mills, Milan was “in-between” the mining towns towards the east and the Hudson River and as a result had a great deal of important commercial. It was the opening of the Erie Canal (1825) and then the development of the railroad that led to its population growth, peaking in 1840 at 1,745 residents.
The move to river cities and the western migration caused the population to decline until 1930 at 622 residents. Then following the 1930s and the Great Depression the population grew again, due in part to the construction of the Taconic Parkway which ended in Milan at the time, and then the post World War II boom. Today Milan is a rural town with a considerable number of part-time residents who maintain second homes. It has considerable recreational resources and has resisted large scale residential developments and mining.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation owns, manages and maintains two Multiple Use Areas in Milan. Both are east of the Taconic State Parkway.

The Roeliff Jansen Kill Multiple Use Area is 125 acres and is accessed from a pull-off on the east side of the Taconic State Parkway near the Roeliff Jansen Kill.
