The mansion at Old Westbury Gardens (71 Old Westbury Road, Old Westbury, 516-333-0048) is permanently enshrined in the memory of Long Islanders and visitors alike as the quintessential image of the Gold Coast. The mansion and grounds are run a private foundation, so you can either become a member or pay a fee each time you visit. The grounds are more spread out and lawn-like, so be prepared to walk in order to view certain gardens. Unlike many similar places, picnicking is allowed at Old Westbury Gardens (with certain restrictions). They re-open April 1st.
These pictures were taken last summer when making a trip to see the special outdoor garden train installation, which graced the imaginations of many for a few short months. Who knows what their summertime delights will be for this year?
