The Hudson River Museum

Second week of winter vacation, yippee! My husband and I took a drive cross-county to Yonkers to visit the Hudson River Museum, a first visit for each of us. I had been interested in seeing the permanent exhibit of the Hudson River that several teachers at school had told me about and my husband was interested in seeing the art.

What wound up interesting me even more than the exhibits was Glenview, the building next door to the museum. Alas, it was closed for removal of holiday decorations. I was curious about the home because it initially housed the museum, which opened in 1924 one year before the birth of my Dad (who was born and raised in Yonkers.) My husband and I realized there was a possibility that my Dad's parents might have taken him to the museum when it was housed in the mansion. Fun to ponder the possibilities!
