I was heading north from Westchester into Rockland County to take a short hike at Buttermilk Falls [199 South Greenbush Road, West Nyack], it seemed like a great idea for a pit stop on my way to the Culinary Institute. I had seen some gorgeous spring falls around this time and had high expectations, silly me!
The falls were nothing but trickles at the time. It looks like a beautiful drop off, and would probably be quite a sight in rainier times.
The trip was not in vain without a waterfall, as we enjoyed the fresh air and exercise, and discovered a sculpture park right up the road! The Rockland Center for the Arts [27 South Greenbush Road, West Nyack, NY 10994] was such a delightful surprise. It is free to investigate the grounds and observe all of the obscure sculptures.
