Leaf Peeping & Cozy Fireplaces
Long Island TV is back and this week the team is on the hunt for the perfect fall day complete with leaf peeping, cozy fireplaces and of course some Long Island waterfront views.
Planting Fields on Long Island’s Gold Coast
One of the best spots to take in the blazing colors of fall is at Planting Fields on Long Island’s Gold Coast. This magnificent estate was owned by the Coe family in the 20th century and boasts over 400-acres of stunning gardens designed by the Olmsted Brothers, a renowned landscape architectural firm best known for their design of the gardens at New York’s Central Park. Take in the estates serene colors and be sure to visit their new outdoor art exhibition “The Great Bird Blind Debate” by artists Mark Dion and David Brooks. The exhibition frames the artists dueling views on birdwatching or “birding” as an activity and birders as a distinct community. The bird sanctuary garden was completely replanted for the exhibition with native plants to ensure birds would thrive in the environment.
