Spent an enjoyable half-day here, starting with the Tram Tour as an orientation item – then an enjoyable walk around the various cultivated areas and glass-houses. There are a number of large sculptures by Manolo Valdes in the gardens and the ‘Holiday Train Show’ was a very popular visiting feature. Very relaxing time in a safe environment. Easy reach from Grand Central station – just five stops from the city centre on the Harlem line. Altogether a pleasant alternative to Central Park.
