Park
“Teatown Lake Reservation is 1,000 nature preserve and education center. Dale and I enjoy walking around the lake (some rocks and roots, and takes around 40 minutes). It's peaceful and there's all kinds of wildlife. They also rehabilitate injured animals and birds and you can visit these, also. There are also indoor exhibits and a gift shop, but getting out into the countryside is the reason we go! Small parking fee - well worth it!”

“ This our quick, chill and inexpensive Thai restaurant to go to on our way home from the city. Their food is great. We love their shredded papaya salad, chicken roti and the Tom Yum soup but really most everything on the menu is classic Thai food- flavorful and yummy. ”
