My family and I have only a short time in Tarrytown. Can anyone please tell me which estate is the better to see for a history buff - Lyndhurst or Kykuit?
I've honestly never been to Kykuit but Lyndhurst history Acritetcture and land is absolutey amazing and very affordable!
My response would be Lyndhurst
Lyndhurst has a bit more unusual story behind it and is a rare Gothic style mansion. Kykuit is more impressive and larger, and has an art collection. I think it takes longer to see Kykuit. You will not regret either one, but by a slim margin I'd choose Kykuit.
Lyndhurst, Gould story more interesting.
I thought the story of the tycoon was magnificent. I'd go see Lyndhurst
I would go to Kykuit.
Kykuit I was throw off guard with that. I just realized it was the Rockerfella mansion. That was awesome so many rooms to go in and floors too along with gardens. In the Lyndhurst they had something going on that day so could only see the outside they were not letting anyone tour inside. But it was pretty from outside.
