Kykuit

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.

Paramount Hudson Valley

A 1930s theater.

Reviewed By sonny2571 - Peekskill, New York

This theater is a throwback to the old movie theaters that existed in my childhood. Extraordinarily beautifully decorated and furnished, large selection of various entertainment venues, large number of seats, a balcony, large public parking, many great restaurants within walking distance to theater. If you want to go to a wonderful theater that would remind you of the 50's and earlier, and not travel to the city, this is the place to go to after attending one of the numerous great restaurants found around the theater. Do not miss.

Rockefeller State Park Preserve

Reviewed By lindaofny - South Salem, New York

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.

Lucas candies

Reviewed By UCFKnightsFan - Orlando, Florida

Lucas Candies has been around since 1896! It is a Haverstraw Landmark. You must visit this chocolate shop if your travels take you to the village of Haverstraw.

The chocolate here is perfect.............aromatic, sweet, rich, decadent, delicious, and addicting.

They have been around for 120 years, so they must be doing something right! Go here for the quality of the chocolate and the excellent customer service!

Great place for a walk or longer hike Favorite is the Hidden Valley Trail. Many diverse sections that will make your walk entertaining. Beware of some steep elevation changes Plenty of parking and not particularly crowded, this is definitely a local go to place

Meander through an historic, 18th-century riverside landscape and discover a breathtaking display - all made of jack o' lanterns!

Reviewed By alp250 - Scranton, Pennsylvania

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!

Sleepy Hollow Cemetery

Reviewed By marleneaa - Atlantic City, New Jersey

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.
