"My friends have raved about (and created great instagram envy from) this celebrated sculpture park located in the town of Cornwall. The center boasts a collection of more than 100 carefully sited sculptures nestled in the midst 500 acres of rolling hills, woodlands and fields of native grasses and wildflowers. Maybe I’ll see you there!"
“Although it is self-serving to mention, I do feel that Storm King Art Center is an essential Hudson Valley destination. Our 500-acres have been sculpted over the past 58 years specifically to display outdoor artwork. It is a unique destination where visitors can experience large-scale sculpture and site-specific commissions under open sky.”
"You'll find me at Blooming Hill Farm with my family most weekends for brunch. Blooming Hill is all organic and their brunch and dinner menus feature their fabulous produce. Founder, Guy Jones, is a fountain of information regarding farming and growing a vegetable garden."
“I’m obsessed with the history of NJ’s state Botanical Garden and mansion. The Tudor Revival house holds ancient wood paneling, mantel pieces and stained glass windows stripped from important homes in Europe."
"In Garrison (a short drive to the Magazzino Italian Art Warhouse) is a wonderous home and collection created by the industrial designer Russel Wright. In the early 20th Century Russel Wright purchased a defunct quarry. He spend the next decade turning the land into a wondrous garden and the quarry into the pool. Built onto and into the rock is his home where he lived with his wife and daughter."
“Although I plan plenty of events at Blue Hill, I never grow tired of touring the farm, learning about sustainability and visiting my favorite animals. Get a healthy little lunch at the cafe while you’re there."
