Kykuit, Sleepy Hollow

Home of John D. Rockefeller--once the richest man in America-- Kykuit features a collection of sculptures and landscaped gardens, maintained for over 100 years. The 40-room house and estate, spread over 1,380 hectares (3,410 acres), once had its own food supplies, gardeners, laborers, and security officers. The property once contained 75 houses and 70 private roads. Take one of several guided tours to see the six-story house. You'll discover underground art galleries with a collection of Picasso tapestries. Outside, expansive terraced spaces contain world-renowned 20th-century sculptures and fountains amidst valleys, and ponds. Most tours are more than two hours long, which includes a shuttle bus ride to and from the estate.

  • We made a reservation here in Brazil, the site of Kykuit. We opted for the more complete visit, of 3 hours, and no regrets. We were in New York, no car. We take the train at Grand Central Station, the same as in the movie the girl on the train, that is, along the Hudson River. After a train cab, up the center of tourism. There a shuttle picks up the people already identified. A guide welcomed us and accompanied. It is important to understand English because that's a lot of information about the history, the location and the works of art. Everything perfect, and very beautiful. Recommend a more detailed planning a ride to see other attractions of the Hudson Valley, really wonderful.
