In less than two hours, you can escape New York City and explore Storm King Art Center, a 500-acre outdoor sculpture museum in the Hudson Valley.
Incredible pieces of sculpture from different artists are on display, including works by Maya Lin and Dennis Oppenheim. With open landscapes and nature abound, it feels a world away from Manhattan. In the fall, changing tree colors and foliage provide plenty of photo ops. It’s a breath of fresh air—quite literally—from the crowded and tourist-heavy museums.
