The New York State Thruway, or I-87, to Hudson River and from Ashburton Avenue to Hastings-on-Hudson border form the boundaries of the greater community.
John Bond Trevor was a stockbroker that became a prominent landowner in the area. He purchased Seven Pines in 1816 and in 1876 purchased 23 acres of land that joined his property. He began to design Glenview and had it built by 1877. The estate was built with luxury and modern comfort in mind, sparing no expense. The outside of the house was designed using architectural elements of Victorian Gothic and French Second Empire styles. He included the following:
The massive house took a staff of hired help that included:
Trevor died in 1890, and his wife, Emily, lived in the estate until she died in 1922. The house and all of its furnishings were auctioned off. The city purchased the home and converted it into a museum.
Some of the attractions to visit while in the area include the Hudson River Museum, the Lenoir Nature Preserve, and Untermyer Park and Gardens. The Hudson River Museum is one of the largest museums in the county and was founded in 1919 but did not become the Hudson River Museum until 1948. The museum includes exhibits that display the area's heritage, science, and history.
The Lenoir Nature Preserve is located on Dudley Street in the northernmost region of the area along the river. The preserve encompasses 40 acres of woodland habitats. It was initially home to two estates and is just north of the W. B. Thompson Mansion.
Lastly, Untermyer Park and Gardens has been recognized nationally as one of the finest gardens. The public city park takes up 43 acres and is a section of the 150-acre area that was once the Greystone estate, owned by Samuel J. Untermyer. After his death in 1940, the estate was donated to the state, and the park was named in his honor.
