Seeking Wisdom Under the Shade of a Tree

As spring approaches, I yearn for warmer, longer days when I can sit under a tree with a favorite philosophy text, pondering the mysteries of the universe.

My Weekend Theater Binge

Netflix popularized bingeing on TV series by making it easy to view entire seasons of episodes back to back, for hours at a time—if that’s your thing.

The Yorktown Land Trust is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Turkey Mountain Nature Preserve. The park has been enjoyed by thousands of citizens seeking nature study, hiking opportunities and unsurpassed views from its 831-foot summit, the highest in Yorktown.

The summit’s 360-degree panorama extends south across the Croton Reservoir as far as the skyscrapers of New York City, west ...
