2 hours north of New York City, in the Hudson Valley where the arts have led the revitalization and gentrification of a parade of late 19th century manufacturing towns that fell into hard times and disrepair over the course of the 20th century, amidst sprawling trees and the rolling hills and mountains of the state's lush forrest, something magical lives. Storm King is a truly majestic 500 acre sculpture garden that is home to some massive installations by some if the worlds most prized and famous artists, many of them created specifically for the hallowed grounds of perfectly maintained natural beauty that make up this gem and one of its kind arts experience. It's a bit of a trek to get there with a 109 minute train ride from Grand Central Station, immediately followed by a 45 minute coach ride that transfers you to the park for a very trim 2 hour visit before you're promptly shuttles back the 45 minutes to the Beacon, Ny train station. Furthermore, the website which is old and very outdated, (and not the most helpful when it comes to clear instructions and information) ensures you really are committed to visiting by making you work at a bit of a guessing game to secure your $35 per person tickets. But trust me, it is worth each and every hoop jumped through to attend. You must see it for yourself. Thats really all that i can say. 
Enjoy some photos of my visit until you can get there yourself. -Cid
