Purchase (Westchester County)
Why we love it
Surrounding PepsiCo’s world headquarters, these beautifully landscaped grounds feature nearly 50 monumental sculptures as well as 11 varied gardens — from a birch grove to a lily pond. The art includes works by 20th-century masters, including Alexander Calder, David Smith and Louise Nevelson, while the gardens were created by renowned landscape designer Russell Page, who sited the sculptures to complement their setting. Page’s “Golden Path” winds through the grounds, allowing visitors to connect with both natural and human-made treasures. It’s a delightful place to spend a weekend afternoon.
More to explore
Just across the road, the Neuberger Museum at SUNY Purchase features a fine collection of 20th-century artwork as well as interesting temporary exhibitions.
