Beautiful, peaceful, inspiring. Get lost in this magical garden at the foot of Fort Tryon Park. Meander through keeping open eyes to see everything.

The heathers are generic (no specimen plants as far as I could tell) and do not appear to be arranged in a particular pattern. The main attractions are the surrounding lawns and unobstructed views of the Palisades,... More

Just wanted to let readers know that the iPad app location for the Heather Garden at Fort Tryon Park (FTP) shows it as below the George Washington Bridge! Obviously it is way off the mark. Having said that, FTP is one of my favorite New York City parks.
