Bartow-Pell Mansion

I was looking for an easy adventure over the weekend and learned about the Bartow-Pell mansion and gardens. Located down on Pelham Bay, in the Bronx, it's a Greek-Revival manor house that once belonged to a wealthy doctor and his family. According to history, Thomas Pell purchased the land from the Lenape Indians in the mid-1600s and his family owned the land for years to come. The current house is far newer than the 17th century - in fact, it's believed it was built after the original was destroyed during the Revolutionary War. The property has had quite a history and is now owned by the city of NY and a national landmark.
The house isn't massive, but the ground sprawl on towards the bay with a trail around the property right along the water. The planned gardens are so lovely, even prepped for winter time. The city added a fun modern art sculpture on the front lawn - a neat contrast to the historic property. You can tour inside which I will for sure do once COVID goes away!
