Historic old mansion set in the northern part of Pelham Bay Park. Free Parking. Excellent tour given by the guide. Nice landscaping.
Visit the mansion and take a tour . Walk in the gardens and take a hike down to the water . Afterwards you can drive over to City Island and eat seafood at any one of the many restaurants . Nice quiet easy going day . Call ahead for tour hours , grounds are free .
