Untermyer is a beautiful almost secret historic 45 acre garden offering peace and tranquility in the City of Yonkers NY. It is nestled on the Banks of the Hudson River and hidden behind a giant wall. It is a dream for historians, photographers and garden lovers. Untermyer is open to the public and it is free with parking. I frequent this garden often as it is close by and my favorite part is the Temple of Love!
“Sometimes since I’ve been in the garden I’ve looked up through the trees at the sky and I have had a strange feeling of being happy as if something was pushing and drawing in my chest and making me breathe fast. Magic is always pushing and drawing and making things out of nothing. Everything is made out of magic, leaves and trees, flowers and birds, badgers and foxes and squirrels and people. So it must be all around us. In this garden – in all the places.”
