Untermyer Gardens News!
Trip Advisor, the largest social travel untermyer 6.19website in the world, has recently named Untermyer Gardens in Yonkers the #1 attraction in Westchester County. Stephen Byrns, the president of the Untermyer Gardens Conservancy, says, "For several years, the garden has been in the number two or three position, usually after Kykuit and Lyndhurst, so this is a thrilling and surprising development. Untermyer has been an underdog for years, so it is wonderful to see this recognition. Credit goes to the hard work of the entire Untermyer team." Mayor Spano agrees, "Yonkers' hidden gem is no longer a secret. Untermyer Gardens has a rich history with picturesque views and landscapes that are unparalleled, making it a true treasure for our city." 75,000 people visited Untermyer Gardens in 2018 and it is currently the subject of a profile in the September issue of Elle Décor magazine.
