We went here on a recommendation of a lady we met in a store in Sleepy Hollow. It was so beautiful. Part of the gardens is under construction but the parts we did see were still really lovely. It was a nice place to stop and take pictures.

Located in the Bronx, just 20 minutes from Midtown Manhattan via Metro North Railroad, the 250-acre New York Botanical Garden is a showplace of nature in every season of the year and a must-see destination for NYC visitors. Discover 50 breathtaking gardens, indoor rain forests and deserts, 50 acres of native forest, a river, waterfalls, and rolling green hills. Major seasonal exhibitions and events complement the existing beauty of the permanent gardens, and highlights include the Holiday Train Show (November - January) and The Orchid Show (March - April). NYBG is the perfect excursion for visitors looking to experience the natural beauty of New York City.
The annual Orchid Show is one of the highlights of the year. While wonderful in the day -on Friday and Saturday nights, the NYBG sells ticket for 6:30, 7:30or 8:30 entrance. Go for the 6:30 entrance as you will get to see the gorgeous flowers in day light as well as artfully lit in the evening. Plus music is piped in and there are three bar stations. What a fun and beautiful evening experience.

This is one of the very interesting look out points on the Palisades Parkway. The views of New York and the Hudson River are fascinating.
The small restaurant serves basic American hot foods, and my recent American cheese sandwich was perfectly prepared.
The decorations are rustic and and aimed at the hiking crowd, but some of the items are very interesting in their own right.
The Inn also has a great collection of books about the New Jersey area.

The Tenafly Nature Center is a non-profit member-supported nature preserve. Our mission is to protect almost 400 wooded acres, all of its inhabitants and teach the next generations to do the same. Since 1961, TNC has nurtured an appreciation for nature, been a leader in open-space preservation and in environmental education for our community in Tenafly, Bergen County, and beyond.When trails are open we welcome visitors to hike, bird-watch, observe wildlife, cross-country ski, snow-shoe and ice skate on Pfister's Pond.
So grateful to have access to the trails at the Tenafly Nature Center to go for a walk, breathe deeply, open my eyes and clearly think through challenges without the distraction of cars, computers, etc.
This is a very worthwhile nonprofit organization to support and a beloved space in Tenafly.

Bergenpac is located conveniently in the center of Englewood, there is ample parking around and many good restaurants nearby.
The venue is spacious and seating is very comfortable and sound is pretty good too.
The venue is used for anything from community events to world class performers.
They do a lot of education and local community outreach.
It is a local gem, offering drama and variety, comedy shows, classical music and ballet and more.
The volunteers and staff are very nice and responsive as well.
Good for everyone really, including older patrons and families with younger children depending on performance.

Occupying more than 400 acres in the Bronx, this cemetery is known for the ornate and imaginative mausoleums and monuments of some of the country's most famous industrialists and politicians. Notable individuals include Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Celia Cruz, Irving Berlin, Herman Melville, and many more. Guide maps are available at both cemetery entrances.
Go in through the Jerome Avenue gate. That is where you should start your tour. All the large mausoleums are there. So many famous people are buried here. Download a map or pick one up at the 233rd St gate. Tours are given and in the fall they have night time tours. it really is a beautiful peaceful setting

The Hudson River Museum overlooks the Hudson River along Warburton Avenue just below Odell Avenue. It captures a variety of subjects and modalities, including painting (some Hudson River School paintings, as well as wall panels, posters); some items of sculpture; ecology--the ecology of the Hudson Estuary and River Valley; space (a small planetarium with a changing and excellent sky show); all adjacent to one of the old Hudson Valley mansions of the old Dutch-English families that dominated New York society and business into the early 20th Century. It is probably a good way to introduce younger children to museums since it has so many different types of exhibits, and in fact, it is also used as an educational center for the Yonkers schools. Docent led tours of the museum and particularly the mansion are available. Parking is free in a large lot adjacent to the museum. It is a little tricky to find it driving there, so make sure you use your GPS. The problem is that there are only a few streets that cross that part of Yonkers from the parkways to Warburton Avenue. A small gift shop oriented toward kids with some snacks available, but there is no café.

Across the Hudson, from the north of Manhattan limits, sits the Palisades Interstate Park. Ironically even though New York is part of the "Interstate," NYorkers don't use the park in droves because, most likely, because you need a car. But once you get on your ride it's a nice experience at the park and surrounding areas. It is a serene and relaxing experience that reconnects your sensibilities of nature and you will want to repeat it.

A non-profit cultural institution that is located on 26 acres in the Bronx, whose mission is to explore the interaction between people and their natural environment through the maintenance of gardens, greenhouses and environmental protection programs for residents and visitors.
mostly locals in Riverdale know this beautiful location with view of the Palisades and lovely gardens. The mansion is lovely, used as a venue space. There are tranquil paths, well kept lawns, and a very peaceful atmosphere. Limited parking is available and it is a bit of a walk from the nearest bus stop. There are no nearby subway stops although MetroNorth Riverdale station is a formidable up hill walk away

Difficult to impart the full flavor of this place. It sits on top of a hill and from several spots there are good vistas. It is arranged like a city grid with a number of tall buildings divided by roads into blocks
The buildings contain well known major stores: Dicks, Lord & Taylor, an Apple store for example. Many food places ranging from snackeries to major restaurants. Again well known chains and small boutiques there is
One large green open space. A LEGO land for the kids
Multiple parking garages at low prices Superb movie theater (10 screens) one of which is hooked into the Met for opera simulcasts. Located within a hew minutes of the NY state thruway, the Sprain, Central Avenue and Tuckahoe rd in Yonkers
It can be quiet and peaceful at off times but a complete madhouse at busy time
An easy place to shop, eat, pass time but not at peak times!
