NYCB Theatre at Westbury

Reviewed By blackbear59 - New York City

We went to see Colors of Christmas. The show was very entertaining. The seats were great and the sound system was very good. We purchased the VIP package which offers a lounge area . The loung was a nice place to have a conversation prior to the show but the food is nothing spectacular. We enjoyed the VIP parking which provided a short walk to the venue. On this night entering and exiting was not an issue because the show was not that crowded. On the more crowded nightsthat I have been here , it does require a little patience and you should exit out within 15 minutes. Westbury is a very nice place to see a show.

Opened to the public in 1959 with the mission of preserving a part of Long Island’s heritage, Old Westbury Gardens is an extraordinary example of a gracious era. Built in 1906 by the English designer George A. Crawley, Westbury House is a magnificent country house reflecting English architecture of the late 1600s and early 1700s The house is furnished with fine English antiques and decorative arts and remains virtually intact from the more than 50 years of the family’s residence. The estate includes over 70 acres of landscaped formal and informal gardens. An additional 160 acres of fields and woodlands surround the estate.

No matter what time of year you visit this historic home and gardens, it leaves an impression. During this holiday season, the home is decorated with beautiful vintage decorations. There is an area to take pictures with Santa, as well as, a place to have refreshments. While walking through the home you could hear a pianist playing in the background. The snow covered grounds add to the setting.

Can You Escape LI

You and your team get locked in a fully themed room. The clock starts as soon as you enter. You have 60 heart pounding minutes to solve the puzzles, find the clues, and get out. You need to think outside of the box and think fast. Can You Escape? Many will try, few will succeed.

We went there for a family outing today and we were surprised to find this wonderful gem. Although this museum appear small at first, it is not, There is a lot to see, aircraft exhibits, space exhibits,interactive exhibits, multiple floors of exhibits, a Fireman's Museum and a cafe. Today we visited the space exhibits. They have thing such as real LEM Moon Lander. space suits, rockets and much more. We also visited the airplane hanger where they a a A-6F Airplane, F-14 Tom Cat Airplane and a A-10 Warthog Airplane. There is so much to see that it will take you multiple days to explore it. There are multiple floors and a skywalk where you can see the exhibits from above the main floor. This is great place for children. There is a lot to see and learn. We will be returning.

Long Island Puppet Theatre

Reviewed By marjay3 - New York

We went to a production of Frozen on April 17, 2014. It was a total waste of time and my three children were completely bored. They had a performer lip sync the songs from Frozen..each song about 10 times while the children lined up over and over to sing the songs into the microphone. There was a reading of the golden book version and a photo op. Just a poor idea.
The performer was very nice; the people who own the business seem interested in doing a good job, but this was a total miss.

Nassau County Museum of Art

Reviewed By bb_mccaw - New York City

This museum is in the mansion of a former Long Island Gold Coast estatea and across the surrounding grounds. It changes exhibits several times a year, and features significant artwork in almost any media of important artists of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. It is always worth a visit, and the caliber of the work rivals the major museums in Manhattan, albeit on a smaller scale!

Sagamore Hill National Historic Site

A bully good historic attraction, not to be missed: the home of Theodore Roosevelt from 1902 to 1906, considered the "Summer White House," a beautiful 23-room Victorian mansion estate that also includes a 37-acre National Environmental Study Area of forest, tidal salt marsh and bay beach.
