We visited the Chiuly exhibit at night. Magical! We will go back to see it during the day. It was easy access and well organized with bands, live music, food trucks and all. But I believe it was only on Thursday night.

Wonderful place to visit. A scientific and environmental treasure, as well as a beautiful relaxing day out. Take the mini-train if you can, as that gives an overview of the whole gardens

MetroNorth takes you right there from Grand Central Station it’s a 20 minute ride and has its own stop it’s either the 3rd or 4th stop. Exit the train station walk across the street and you are in! Enjoy!
