The Conservancy will be sponsoring an all day trip up the Hudson River from Yonkers Pier to Catskill and return on Sunday, September 23, 2018. The journey will be made aboard a large SeaStreak fast ferry navigated for views of historic landmarks on both sides of the river. At Catskill, tour participants will be bussed to nearby Thomas Cole National Historic Site. In keeping with the Conservancy’s 20th anniversary theme of Bronxville painting, the tour will be devoted to Thomas Cole (1801-1848), the founder of the Hudson River school of painting whose landscape paintings mentored Bronxville artists. The restored Thomas Cole house and studio will be showing on the date of the tour a special exhibit of Cole’s Hudson River related work.
