An ode to gracious living


The Lyndhurst Flower Show weekend is growing again, by design. This year’s season-opening April event at the Tarrytown historic site will incorporate contemporary artists into the annual celebration of flowers, antiques and gracious living.

The Tiffany story, in full


The cachet of owning tabletop or decorative goods by Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) remains to this day. Lyndhurst is exploring the decorative-arts legend, including his ties to Irvington, with “Becoming Tiffany: From Hudson Valley Painter to Gilded Age Tastemaker,” through Sept. 24.

From France to Tarrytown


Lyndhurst heiress Anna Gould’s connection to France will be in the spotlight at the Tarrytown mansion this month when some of her possessions secured in a Parisian auction this winter go on display. Plus, an update on a $1 million grant being used to restore the lower landscape and new specialty tours.
