Route
“The entrance is right outside our front door. It's 30 minutes walking distance to Hastings-on-Hudson, witch has a ton of cute little shops and places to eat. It's beautiful all year round, with views overlooking the Hudson River and the Palisades. Beautiful for a relaxing walk or a morning jog. ”

Café
“This has got to be one of my absolute favorite hangouts. Run by Basilio. If you are looking for a unique coffee shop, this is it! Basilio runs this place like it is, by himself with an extraordinary flare and his own blend of unique humor. Non pretentious, slightly down at heel, relaxed, warm and friendly. You can stay as long as you want inside or out, and read the daily newspapers and magazines he provides. The lunches are absolutely delicious, various types of salads served with a nice big crunchy warm role, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. He also makes pizza too which is to die for! Small and crisp with delicious toppings.”
