Untermyer Gardens is Yonkers, hidden secret. Once you enter the Walled Gardens, you are going back in time... perhaps the Great Gatsby days will come to mind. The sculptures, ponds w/ gold fish, along with the amazing plants, trees, & view of the Hudson River & the Palisades will simply take your breathe away! The landscaping changes w/ the Seasons....

The history of the place adds spiritual beauty to the physical beauty of the gardens. It is a great place to get away from the rush of the city and spend a few hours (have a picnic) in the surrounding beauty. The flowers blooming around fountain of the walled garden are absolutely gorgeous. THe vista view is incredible. Bring your... More

This must have been a revelation in its time so I was surprised to learn that it was now known as the US's most forgotten garden. With some stunning vistas it must be difficult to maintain on its unusual site which in some places is quite steep - some of the constructions such as the Temple of Love are really... More

Still being rescued from decades of neglect, the Untermyer Estate retains its loveliness and some of its magic. Overlooking the Hudson, with stunning views, a really pretty walled garden with Moorish influences, and a lovely path down to the lowest level of the estate, this is an oasis created in another era, once again open to the public. GO. It's... More

The master horticulturist has done a great job recreating the gardens of the 1920's. Worth a visit for anyone in the area

I just love visiting gardens around the country and the world. Last week I saw a very beautiful one close to home--Untermyer Gardens on the Hudson in Yonkers, New York. The gardens are named for Samuel Untermyer, a prominent New York lawyer who had a strong passion for horticulture and beauty. In 1899 he purchased Greystone (Untermyer), the former estate... More

This is a jewel along Route 9 in Yonkers. It is undergoing restoration and has some beautiful old mosaics in disrepair. The gardens of the main area have been restored and are gorgeous. A wonderful place to go and enjoy. A music and events calendar is on their web site.

Untermeyer Gardens makes for a lovely stop as you wind your way up the Hudson from the Bronx towards the river town of Hastings. Admission is free, and at 40 something acres, it is an easily walkable feast for the eyes. The fact that it has been only partially restored works in its favor. The beautiful gardens, set among semi-dilapidated... More

Don't miss the pathway down the hill with a lovely view of the Hudson. The gardener was very helpful and seemed knowledgeable about various plants there.
