Description

An exclusive, private tour of Untermyer by President of the Garden and Conservatory, Mr. Stephen Byrns.  

Untermyer Park and Gardens is a historic 43-acre public park, located in Yonkers, New York in Westchester County, just north of New York City. The park is a remnant of Samuel J. Untermyer's 150-acre  estate "Greystone". Situated on the steep land arising from the eastern bank of the Hudson River to the bluff on top of it, the park features a Walled Garden inspired by ancient Indo-Persian gardens, a small Grecian-style open-air amphitheater with two facing sphynxes supported by tall Ionic columns, a classical pavilion, stoa and loggias, a rock-and-water feature called the "The Temple of Love", as well as a long staircase from the Walled Garden to an Overlook with views of the river and the Palisades.
