Foursquare Tips

  • If you look across the Hudson, you'll see a group of buildings that look like a monastery. Frederick Vanderbilt bought the land and helped the order build it in order to preserve his view & privacy.
  • If you have time hike the trail that circles the estate and if its open head down to Bard Rock which gets you right down to the riverfront. Also, check out the gardens on the south part of the estate.
  • Another cool historic place to check out. The only way to see the mansion is to take the guided tour, takes about an hour. No photos allowed, unfortunately.
  • When you come to the Vanderbilt NHS dont forget to go to the Roosevelt sites just a couple miles south.it makes for a great day of history and fun
  • Go to the Italian Gardens and enjoy the flowers.
  • When you visit during extreme hot weather, the tour will not take you to the upper level. The main floor is not disappointing, nonetheless.
