decorated glenviewDecorated Glenview

Hudson River Museum, Yonkers
Through Jan. 5

The elegant Glenview Mansion, which was built in 1876 and serves as the historic home of The Hudson River Museum, gets to play dress-up at this time each year during Decorated Glenview. This year, designer Bob Pesce presents a contemporary interpretation of Victorian holiday splendor in Glenview’s parlor, sitting room, library, dining room, and great hall. See the floor-to-ceiling tree in the parlor; Coalport porcelain plates and green-engraved Bristol glassware on the dining table; and in the sitting room, the place for casual celebrations, see a table-top tree, the earliest type of fir tree brought to England for indoor display. Victorian toys from the collection—including a doll, sled, and building blocks—beloved long before the iPhone or even Barbie, are on display. Nybelwyck Hall, a 24-room dollhouse reminiscent of Hudson Valley manors, will also be decked out in red and green in its own special room in Glenview.
