Manor Park

Reviewed By mosaferNY - new york

Manor park is a beautiful park in Larchmont on the water, with breathtaking view. In the summer the kids love to run up and down the rocks, or just simply sit there and enjoy the view. You can not picnic in the park, and must have your dog on the leash at all times.

New York Botanical Garden

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.

Reviewed By GMBG - Brooklyn, New York

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.

Untermyer Gardens

Reviewed By Karen M - Phoenix, Arizona

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.

St. Paul's Church National Historic Site

Built in 1665 and declared a National Historic Site in 1943, Saint Paul's Church's original façade and bell are intact, including the old graveyard and magnificent 1830 organ.

Reviewed By John H - Hook, United Kingdom

Very interesting piece of American history. Shows usage over many years, including function during the battles of the 18th century. Interesting video presentation and displays of models depicting battles. Also displays of uniforms and pictures referring to the era. Well worth a visit. A jewel in an area of urban development.

Harbor Island Park

Driving by Harbor Island Park, I was taken in by the beautiful view of the harbor with its boats. There are places for sporting events, walking trails, and a sandy beach. There is a charge for parking in the summer.

Sands Point Preserve

Reviewed By Ezra B - New York City, New York

The Sands Point Preserve is a very nice nature park with trails, cliffs, beaches and great views. This is a place to free your mind from the hustle of city life and embrace the beauty of mother nature. The first iconic structure upon your visit is the Castle Gould, which was made from Onondaga Limestone that contains thousands of fossils.

I saw up to eight trails, although the map says six trails. I would recommend walking or taking a rugged bike with athletic gear. The trails are well organized, clean and well posted. There are private residences to the east, and the Hempstead House to the north west, which was holding a beautiful wedding on the day and time we visited. The park allows parking, camping and places in the woods to meditate, as we saw one gentleman doing.

Woodlawn Cemetery

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.

Reviewed By mabeena - Bronx, NY

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

This is our go to theater! You can reserve seats ahead of time so you know where you are sitting plus the seats recline to almost flat! The food is actually good. The lines are long and not particularly fast but since you have an assigned seat there is no need to rush.
