A Beautiful Historic Garden in Yonkers
New York City has no lack of beautiful gardens from Central Park to the NY and Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. But how many of you have ever been to the historic Untermyer Gardens in Yonkers? It is a historic 43-acre city public park, just north of New York City that’s a remnant of Samuel J. Untermyer’s 150-acre estate “Greystone”. The park is open 9-5 seven days a week. No reservations required. Learn more here.
Fun, Light Art
Our roving photograph says she is seeing a lot of fun, light but meaningful art for our dark times. From Peace, Love & Happiness by Scott Gerber installed at the South Street Seaport overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge, to the KAWS retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum, art can certainly lift our spirits and inspire. En route to the exhibit KAWS: WHAT PARTY, one is greeted by the venerable and much missed RBG, forever a reminder to remain positive and not accept defeat.
Our roving photographer, Nicole Freezer Rubens is the author of “The Long P:ause and the Short Breath,” photos and poetry from NYC’s pandemic.
