It’s getting warmer, guys! Our friend and contributor Vicky Toni, that is super into cultural stuff, has suggested a great day trip getaway that we love: Storm King Art Center. It’s the perfect NY cultural escape!
*Pictures were taken during the month of October!*
Here is what Vicky shares with us:
Sounds like the perfect timing to escape the city and explore the Hudson Valley. One of its gems is the Storm King Art Center – a contemporary outdoor sculpture museum where you can enjoy a nice cultural day outdoors.
To start, it’s located in the lower Hudson area, one hour north of New York. The property has 500-acre landscape of fields, hills and woodlands.
This outdoor museum features a collection with more than 100 sculptures created by renowned artists like Barnett Newman, Louise Bourgeois, Maya Lin and Richard Serra.
A great way to experience the landscape Storm King has to offer is touring the gardens on a bike!
Rentals are first-come, first-served, so be sure to see that as soon as you get there.
They also offer a small kiosk with food and drinks, but don’t expect a huge sit down lunch. Options are limited and if you have any food restrictions, we recommend you bringing something from home to guarantee you’ll be fine!
In addition, one of the options to get to Storm King is via Metro North train from Grand Central Terminal to Beacon. Then, you can get a taxi from Beacon to the Storm King.”
Lastly, Storm King reopens Wednesday, April 5th at 10am! They are offering a free Storm King Family Membership to their first visitor on the 5th! So, if you’re interested, don’t forget to hurry up there.
So, we can’t wait to be back there this year!
