This is a smaller garden in Riverdale. It has an amazing view of the Hudson River and the Palisades. The grounds are kept impeccable. It is a very serene place.

Beautiful gardens, views (Hudson) and greenhouse. Not a common destination - especially for tourists. But if you are in NYC for an extended time, and you are near, it is totally worth it if you like plants.

Great views. Perfect place to sit and reflect. There are benches and chairs and nothing but scenic views of the Hudson River. They have some good events.
