It’s been ever so long, but another Design Diversion is on the horizon. For those who aren’t at the beach or the lake, here’s a chance to get out of the city nonetheless. Untermyer Gardens is an undiscovered gem in NYC, the wild ruins of Samuel Untermyer’s ambitious Greystone estate and Beaux-Arts gardens, originally 150 acres on the Hudson. Now a Yonkers public park, the eclectic mix of garden designs and pavilions is slowly undergoing restoration. Unlike previous diversions, this is unscripted and ideal for kids of all ages. No tours, just time to explore and be social. Please bring a blanket and picnic if you’re so inclined. We’ll meet around 1p; exact location TBD. There is public transit, but we’ll try to organise a few carpools as well.
Date: Saturday, July 16, 1p
Address: 945 North Broadway, Yonkers, NY (Metro-North to Greystone or Yonkers)
