NY 9G was assigned as part of the 1930 renumbering
; however, it
extended only from U.S.
Route 9 in Rhinebeck to US 9 in Hudson.

Rutsen Roads. The portion of NY 9G between Germantown and NY 199,
under construction in 1930, was opened to traffic by
south, an alternate route of US 9 between Poughkeepsie and Hyde Park via East Park was designated New York State
Route 9F as part of the 1930 renumbering.
NY 9F was extended northward from East Park to Rhinebeck, where it
ended at a junction with US 9 northeast of the village. NY 9F was
absorbed into a rerouted and extended NY 9G by 1938.
