Demarest Farm

Reviewed By mrcarats - Brooklyn, New York

just finished reading some of the reviews that had rated this place poor-terrible. I noticed these were all reviews dating back a number of years. I am glad someone at the farm must have been paying attention to all the negative stuff and worked on improving it. I was just there Sunday Aug 6th. Yes it was crowded. but found that they had organized sufficient parking. They have 3 hayrides up to orchard so the wait is no longer more than 5-10 minutes.
The bag we were given holds about 12 lbs of peaches. Although most were still hard and thankfully so. As there is no way we could have finished them all before they rotted had they been completely soft. Also they did not seem to mind people noshing on peaches as they picked as opposed to other places where they ask you not to eat as you pick. Peaches were delicious. For $30,(5$ per person entrance plus 10$ for the bag) we got about 13 lbs of peaches to take home plus whatever we ate while we picked. A little pricier than your local fruit store but well worth it. The peaches are delicious. If you are there with little kids they have a small petting zoo (some goats llamas or alpacas not sure which and a pig) all running around in a little corral keeps the little one entertained for an additional 40 minutes maybe longer if they do not get bored quickly. as someone else mentioned don't bother buying the wafers they sell as animal feed from what i saw the animals weren't interested. All in all a good time if you don't have to drive far to get there. We actually stopped there just to break up a little road trip we were on. Would consider going back after labor day for apple season.

The Hermitage

Reviewed By robcurtross - New York City, New York

The Hermitage, a National Historic Landmark and house museum, incorporates a stone house that was visited during the Revolutionary War by General George Washington. It was also the site of the marriage of Aaron Burr and Theodosia Prevost. Its picturesque Gothic Revival design dates to the 1847–48 renovation by the architect William H. Ranlett.

The grounds are pleasant, and from time to time there are special events, including Civil War re-enactments.

Last month I attended the antique British car and motorcycle gathering, Classic Triumph, MG, Austin-Healey, Jaguar, Lotus, Morgan, tvr, Mini, Sunbeam, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, and other British automobiles were on display.

The lecture series can be very educational; check the website to see what is on offer.

Baylor Massacre Burial Site

Reviewed By Justin W - Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey

The Baylor Massacre site is tied to a surprise attack during the Revolutionary War and is a memorial site to those who were lost during the attack.

This is a perfect place for Revolutionary buffs who enjoy learning about the war and for locals who want to know the state's place during the war. It is something if you do not know the local area could easily be missed.

It is a quiet, solemn area to come and read the plaques and have a sense of what these men and women gave up for their country during the war years. Local people did make a difference in the war years for our freedom and this site reflects it.

Reviewed By NancyLMT - New City, New York

We've been going to this mall since it opened. It certainly has changed over the years, and we miss some of the "nicer" stores that were there in the past, but we still enjoy it. It still has a pretty good variety of stores. We go to shop, and to the theater, but frequently, we have lunch on the 4th floor, then we walk, doing a circuit of every single floor. Then back to the 4th floor to the Starbucks in Barnes and Noble for a decaf. Because we're retired we only go during the week, and so avoid the crowds. It isn't the most attractive mall, but there is plenty of parking and it's close by where we live.
