Overlooking the Hudson River in Tarrytown, New York, is Lyndhurst, one of America’s finest Gothic Revival mansions. Designed in 1838 by Alexander Jackson Davis, its architectural brilliance is complemented by the park-like landscape of the estate and a comprehensive collection of original decorative arts. Its noteworthy occupants included: former New York City mayor William Paulding, merchant George Merritt, and railroad tycoon Jay Gould. Lyndhurst is a site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Our guide, Jim, gave such an informative, interesting tour of the mansion. You came away feeling you really got to know a lot about the people who had lived there! Every room was breathtaking in furnishings and decorations for Christmas! This was a perfect time to visit! Even though the mansion is very large, it felt like a home...just lovely!

Grand home and grounds of this former Rockefeller estate offer a marvelous collection of modern sculptures, Chinese and European ceramics, fine furnishings and beautifully landscaped terraces and gardens. KYKUIT IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED UNTIL MAY 3. Please continue to check this listing or go to our website for updates.
I took the Kykuit house tour of the home and grounds. I did not expect to see such spectacular views and a Picasso art collection that was so extensive. Our guide, "Merla" was a treasure. She made every room and outdoor view come alive. The weather that day could not be better and the grounds were as interesting as the home. Be sure to go on a day when good weather is predicted. You will be amazed at the sheer beauty of the location as well as the extensive and priceless art collection. What was particularly special was how close you could get to the objects. So much better than any museum.

We often go to Rockefeller to walk around the lake for our token exercise. There are many trails for those interested in long walks along the well groomed sandy carriage trails. Every one is surrounded by trees or grass. After storms the debris is cleaned up quickly. There are regular events to raise money and volunteers run the office. Seniors can apply for free weekday parking.

Attended an Elvis Tribute Show here by Kevin Mills with his Double Trouble Band & the wonderful Romano sisters, it was unbelievable. Great value for money Kevin was fantastic. & brought Elvis back to life. We had a delicious meal, comfortable seating & a great view. This theatre has many shows throughout the year. Easy access, good parking & facilities. Look forward to seeing Elvis there again!!!

INFESTED with Poison Ivy!
My family and I went with our friends this past weekend.
There are signs all over saying to to climb the trees because of the Poison Ivy. The place is literally crawling with it, you CANNOT walk to the apple trees without walking through poison ivy.
You have to pay for: Parking ($5) Apple Bag ($25) as well as Hayride and Corn Maze.
We left early since they did not have apple cider or donuts to go across the street where we heard they did. And boy were we bummed we went to the "Outhouse" in the first place.
Because just across the street at Harvest Moon Farm & Orchard the parking is free, hayride is free, parking is free, tons of food and activities, live band, animals and no Poison Ivy! Their donuts and pumpkin pie are out of this world. We didn't get to try any of the other food stands since we had already had some microwaved pizza at the toilet..I mean The Outhouse. But they had BBQ places and brick oven pizza as well that looked great.
On a side note, I had to start Prednisone today because; you guessed it, I got poison ivy!

The tri-state area's biggest, most exciting, most electrifying Halloween event features than 5,000 individually hand-carved, illuminated jack o' lanterns in this elaborate walk-through experience. Meander through an historic, 18th-century riverside landscape and discover a breathtaking display - all made of jack o' lanterns! THE GREAT JACK O'LANTERN BLAZE IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED UNTIL SEPTEMBER 28.
We really enjoyed the walk-thru pumpkin blaze! It took us about 45 minutes to walk through with our 1 year old and 3.5 year old! They seemed to enjoy it! Dress warm with hats and gloves as it gets cold; it was about 35 degrees when we went to the 6:30pm time slot on November 12th! Also, get there about 30 minutes early so that you could get the kids in their warm gear! We didn’t use a stroller, but kind of wish we brought one!

Kensico plaza is a nice place to spend an afternoon. Good for a stroll or a bike ride. Lots of free parking, tables and benches for enjoying your lunch. Lots of trees for shade. The plaza features various heritage festivals on summer Sundays.Rain or shine. Every week features an ethnic festival with related cuisine, music and events. We saw a wonderful authentic Mexican dance troupe which featured dancers of all ages. It was wonderful. It is casual so you can bring your own chairs and picnic blankets. Lots of fun for the whole family. Large police presence to ensure your safety.

The cemetery was well kept and it was a beautiful fall walk. The graves were interesting and some were unusual. Interesting that Roosevelt, Carnegie, and Gompers were all in there together. Made for good commentary when discussing the gilded age in history class.
