Fall in the Hudson Valley
Kykuit: The Rockefeller Estate • Chagall Windows at Union Church of Pocantico Hills
Relax during a peaceful drive up to New York’s Hudson Valley. Our first stop is Kykuit: The Rockefeller Estate. This hilltop paradise was home to four generations of the Rockefeller family. Our guided tour includes the main floor of the house complete with its fine furnishings and art; the subterranean art galleries; the Inner Garden and West Terrace, with spectacular views of the Hudson River and the outdoor sculpture collection; and finally, the mammoth Coach Barn with its collection of antique carriages and classic automobiles.
After a gourmet boxed lunch, we visit the Union Church of Pocantico Hills. The church contains stained glass windows by Henri Matisse and Marc Chagall commissioned by members of the Rockefeller family in the 1950s and 1960s.
