mansion/headquarters of the arboretum

(Long Island,
As a number of other rich folk occasionally do, Mrs. Bayard Cutting and her daughter Mrs. Olivia James gave the old family manor and sizable amount of land to the public. Consequently, there is a splendid park to roam about on a number of trails, an immense diversity of plant and bird life to see, and an ever-smaller snack bar to try your luck in.

People also visit for the various concerts given as well as to have weddings performed.

It's also a great place to test a camera lens.

The photo below is a closeup of a monkey tree, with its mad tangle of branches visible in early spring.
