Greenburgh Nature Center & Manor House

Reviewed By preglad - New York

The Greenburgh Nature Center has some nice trails considering where it's located. The main house works effectively enough in terms of interest for very young children, and the rest is over before one knows it. Everyone is quite likable and caring, but it just seems other venues are in a financial position to do this better. It's also a bit unnatural encountering generally wilder creatures inside the second floor of a house surrounded by neighbors with bikes in their driveway.

For me, The Greenburgh Nature Center's main attribute seems to be proximity for those within easy reach. We went with a three year old who, with no complaints, seemed to clearly enjoy herself better in all other trips in our company. Bear Mountain Zoo and surroundings do this all much better, with wider variety of offerings and less expensively.

-- One would imagine, in fairness, with far greater fiscal resources and subsidy as well.

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!

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.

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.

Reviewed By Jeanette F - Asbury, New Jersey

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.

This unassuming country church contains a stained glass window by Henri Matisse and nine windows by Marc Chagall, all commissioned by Nelson A. Rockefeller. The enthralling story of the windows and how they came to be here is the story of relationships among distinguished patrons and collectors of modern art, two great 20th-century artists, and the leading connoisseurs and tastemakers of the day. WINDOW-VIEWING TOURS ARE TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE UNTIL APRIL 2. Please continue to check this listing or go to our website for updates.

Time: Visited Sunday mid-September around 4:30. Perfect for natural lighting for the Good Samaritan Chagall window and the Matisse Rose window.
Duration: Seasoned docent delivered a rapid-fire compelling narrative for each window. (15 minutes). Since a large tour group was to arrive, there was no opportunity for questions.
Gift: Purchase postcards or a packet at the back of the church.

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.

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.
