Horsing Around March 2014

Wondering where your inner kid has been hiding out? We're pretty sure you can find him on one of the 41 colorful carved steeds that encircle Nunley's Carousel, a vintage work of art dating back more than a century. First installed in Canarsie's Golden City Park, it was built by Brooklyn-based Stein and Goldstein Artistic Carousel Company during the golden age of wooden carousel craftsmanship. Today, this beloved piece of history delights the young and young at heart with $2 rides set to a special soundtrack recorded by singer (and Long Islander) Billy Joel and his keyboard player, David Rosenthal. Find all the fun on Museum Row, between the Cradle of Aviation Museum and the Long Island Children's Museum.

Address: Museum Row.

Testimonials

"First time at this hotel and stayed two nights. Was told by friend it was 5 Star at reasonable rates. It easily met that rating. The staff is totally attentive, friendly and helpful at every level from car arrival, check in and restaurant. Every small detail is covered. Lobby is warm and inviting. Restaurant food and service is highest level I have experienced compared to the Marriot/Hilton levels where I usually stay on business trips."

"Every time I walked by the hotel front door they asked me what they could do to make my stay better. They provided us with bicycles and while we were out riding, they filled my cooler with ice. When we checked in I asked how difficult it would be to access my car for items that had been left in it. The response was to move a traffic barrier and park my car right next to the front door to make it easy for us. This attitude continued with the bar and restaurant staff who would provide samples of drinks we were unfamiliar with so we could taste before ordering. Even the piano player cruised the room asking patrons for requests. Nice place."

"We stayed here for a week and have only compliments for the Staff, The Management and the Hotel. The room was lovely. The food was good. The staff and management bent over backward to insure a pleasant stay. In a short review, one can't even describe the spectacular Sunday Brunch. This hotel doesn't rest on its laurels but tries successfully to make each stay a success and each guest feel welcome. Well done!"

"After an amazing two-day stay in Tarrytown for a wedding, we were looking forward to exploring more of New York as we came in from California and this was our first time here. Everyone from the doorman to the front desk to the wait staff greeted us with big smiles and were very pleasant. The hotel itself was very clean and they could not be more helpful with whatever we needed. We can not wait to stay in this lovely hotel again!!!!!!"

"My company had a evening business reception for a number of doctors. The attention to detail was great. Loved the atmosphere and location. Service from the doorman to the private room was excellent. The pre-planned menu was better than expected. Food and beverage was a 10."
