What took us so long? We finally made it to the Storm King Art Center in Mountainville (near Newburgh) and feel a little chagrined at not having visited sooner. Storm King has an eyepopping collection of sculptures situated on 500 acres of lawns, fields and woodlands, including works by Richard Serra, George Rickey, Henry Moore, Isamu Noguchi and David Smith.

You can bring a picnic and relax in the shade of a giant Calder sculpture or at one of the many picnic tables. There’s a “Highlights of the Collection” tour daily, as well as Acoustiguide audio rentals. There are regular handicapped-accessible tram rides if you don’t want to hike or get tired out.

We will be back.
