Untermyer Gardens, the former estate of Samuel Untermyer, is the most beautiful park in Yonkers, perhaps in all of Westchester. It reminds me a little of the grounds of the J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, Calif., though on a smaller scale. As you stand amid the flowers, overhanging trees and fountains, looking at the Persian-style sphinxes, Greek columns and the Hudson River, it's easy to feel yourself transported to a land of elegant, timeless, classical beauty. You can almost imagine Keats or Shelley reciting here (John Masefield, the poet laureate of England, lived and worked nearby around 1895), or imagine nymphs and satyrs cavorting in the pastoral scene. (OK, I shouldn't get carried away.) Descend the steep steps to get a closer look at the river. In the summer, concerts and the occasional play are presented. There is no better place around for these shows, and even when there's nothing going on, it's a quiet, idyllic spot. If you were to see nothing else in Yonkers, you would be advised to see this. It's on the National Register of Historic Places.
