Photos from Lyndhurst Castle in Tarrytown, New York (Sleepy Hollow)

New York 576I attended a wedding in New York this Memorial Day weekend at the Lyndhurst Castle in Tarrytown, New York. I didn’t encounter the Headless Horseman in Sleepy Hollow, but I did snap a few photos of this cool castle.

New York 577Here is a close-up of the castle.

New York 595I got to tour the inside, too. All of the furnishings are roped off.

New York 582There is a lot of architectural detail inside the castle.

New York 585As far as I know, none of these heads belong to the Horseman. 🙂

New York 590The ceilings are highly detailed, too.

New York 584There are a lot of arches in the castle.

New York 586Even the windows are amazing!

New York 589This is my dream desk. So many compartments!

New York 580Of course, there has to be a grandfather clock.

New York 581A castle clock on the fireplace mantle.

New York 593Here is a view of the Hudson river from inside the castle. The castle sits at the top of a hill overlooking the river.

New York 583I walked down to the bottom of the hill for a closer look. Apparently, many others have done the same, as there was a stone bench down there to enjoy it.

New York 606I found another magnificent home at the bottom of the hill right next to the river.

New York 610The expansive grounds were green and lush.

New York 594Even the trees are worth a look.

New York 601This tree shows a lot of character.
