Time to Wander
After last summer's frantic visit to Storm King, we promised ourselves that we'd return with more than one hour allocated to visiting the 500 acre property.
Our goal this year was to leave the city by 10:30 and eat a picnic lunch on one of the shaded lawns. We didn't end up leaving Brooklyn until 11:30 and we didn't actually get out of the city until 12:15, due to the Atlantic Antic and other road hassles. We exchanged our picnic for sandwiches in the car and made it to Storm King by about 1:15, leaving us plenty of time to explore and even rent bikes!
We parked at Museum Hill and walked down around some of the same sculptures we had seen on our first visit. We then rented attractive, albeit slightly uncomfortable, bikes and biked the rest of the property, pausing for a run down a hill, photographs, and taking in the amazing Fall light glittering off the sculptures and grasses.
