  • A lovely historic house on Long Island Sound, tucked away in a corner of the Bronx near Westchester County. Not a lot of furniture or furnishings, but the house itself is historically and architecturally significant. Definitely worth the trip. I never knew what the term "mind your beeswax" meant until a docent here explained it.
  • I took the opportunity to visit this little "secret" on Sunday, as part of the Open House New York, "OHNY" Weekend! I really found it exciting that I could use public transportation to get there from Manhattan, it was a real adventure for me. I always thought of having to go "Up State" to see anything other than buildings. This is truly an escape from the modern distractions of life. There's a feeling of being transported into another country, or state, or even century! You are practically in the middle of the countryside 😀. This is a wonderful example of what The Bronx originally was.
  • A bit of a trek but worth the trip! Mansion and manicured grounds. Also Woodland area and an authentic wigwam. (Note... educational programs and groups can come to use the outside space to study woodlands. Call to reserve).
  • Nice garden. Beautiful lily.
  • Was a while back but found the museum in the serenest forest and part of the Bronx one can ever imagine. The guide and everything was very well taken care of. If you picture the Bronx as a loud and dangerous place, you have never come here before.

Where to stay in Bronx

The Bronx is home to a number of mid-range hotels, bed and breakfasts, and inns. As is the case anywhere in the city, eager sightseers should look for something close to a subway station for easy access to the city’s many attractions. However, you should be aware that these areas often get busy and noisy in the morning with commuters. A vacation rental provides a home away from home and plenty of amenities, and many are located in residential neighborhoods that will help you get off the tourist trail.
