“Great location”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Great location to look over the Hudson, to wander a castle like structure, to visit interesting revived neighborhood bars and restaurants. Art wise, there are interesting items to see.

“Peaceful and unforgettable”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Went with several friends years ago and was delightfully surprised at it's beauty. Surrounded by flowers, trees, nature. It's a place not to be missed. I can still smell the Frankincense inside.
