    Basically a quite large green space, with Rolling Meadows, forested Hills, several picnic areas, and so on. Giant outdoor sculptures dot the landscape, along with smaller ones set in clusters. The fee...  more »

    If this isn’t the finest large-scale outdoor sculpture gallery in the world, I do not know what is. Make sure to take a picnic basket.  more »

    This is a really interesting and not well known place in New York. From the first time I’ve seen this place in season 2 of ‘Master of None’, I really wanted to visit. This place offers a different experience compared to any other art gallery or museum. It has something for everyone. You can see some really cool exhibits like ‘Mirror Fence’, ‘Suspended’ and ‘Three Legged Buddha’ etc. with casual hiking around the park or setup a nice picnic. The facility is really big. It’s easy to get exhausted if you try to cover all the exhibits in a single visit. If you are able to get the spots, make use of the tram. It’s the quickest way to get around the park.

    On a recent 2 week stay in NYC, during which temps were hellish, we decided to head for the hills in search of relief from the heat...And since we'd heard about Storm King on a TV show, decided to take the scenic drive along the Palisades, overlooking the Hudson River...simply amazing views...THEN, we arrived at Storm King and WOW!!!! What a truly mind-blowing experience it is--hundreds of acres of rolling hills, expansive lawns and unbelievable (huge!) art sculptures strategically placed throughout....there's even a LANDSCAPE sculpture by Maya Lin! You can rent bikes & ride the trails or (as we did) walk & gawk....This is truly a must-do for anyone looking for a unique way to spend a day...

    It is an enormous place. I liked how well they have maintained the place. It's absolutely commendable considering the size of the place. It would have been great if there was more information about the art displayed there as in some Background of the artists or the significance of the items on display (if any).. The lack of signs around the place can make one feel lost but then i guess thats the point of the place - to be lost in the environment.. It was great overall..

    Aside from being a featured date in Master of None Season 2 (so I'm told, anyway) Storm King is a really neat outdoor museum about an hour north of the city. You'll look up everything on their site, so here are a couple pro-tips: 1. If you can park at the visitor center do that. It's centrally located. 2. If not, take a right to the east lot. You'll have a bit more walking up front, but it's the first stop on the tram when you leave. 3. Suggest going to the North woods first on foot then consider a picnic or lunch at the outdoor cafe. 4. Plan to spend around 4 hours to walk the whole thing

    Absolutely the most beautiful spot in New York State. This is truly a hidden gem. You can see fantastic modern metals sculptures among beautiful rolling meadows as you pass by on the Thruway, but would have no idea how to find it on a little country road in Cornwall. Search it out. You won't be disappointed. Admission is a little pricey but you can stay all day, ride the tram for free to view the extensive grounds and sculptures or hike them on gentle trails. Bring a picnic lunch but not your pet (boo!), You can rent a bike, but it would be better if you could bring your own. Get a family pass if you live nearby as there are events throughout the year.
