Castles of New York


Featuring 29 Castles of New York

I stand with my back to the stark limestone tower of Lyndhurst, one of America’s finest Gothic revival mansions, and gaze across an expanse of lush, green meadows that roll like a tidal wave to the Hudson River, below. This could be a scene plucked from the ancient myths of England, Ireland, or Wales, replete with warriors bathed in the glow of glistening armor. . . . Instead, this is Tarrytown, New York, located just several miles down Route 9 from the village of legend, Sleepy Hollow. Lyndhurst seems very much at home here, very much a part of the land that was once called “The Hudson Highlands,” where a terrified school teacher named Ichabod Crane fled for his life from a malevolent headless horseman, and a wife-weary fellow named Rip Van Winkle fell into a deep, twenty-year sleep beneath an expansive oak tree.
