Join New York Adventure Club ( https://www.nyadventureclub.com/ ) for an exploration of Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, New York City's third largest park (1146 acres) that's home to the country's first public golf course, the oldest house in the Bronx, and the borough's largest freshwater lake. Led by licensed tour guide and neighborhood expert Kyle Sallee, our unique neighborhood experience will include: • An overview of Van Cortlandt Park throughout the past 300 years, from its origins as a wheat plantation to becoming the third largest park in NYC
• A stop at the Van Cortlandt House, the oldest surviving building in the Bronx, and the family's hidden cemetery on Vault Hill
• A walk along Old Putnam Trail to see railroad remnants of the decommissioned commuter line, and a stop at thirteen stone slabs in the woods that relate to the construction of Grand Central Terminal
• A stop at the oldest public golf course in America to get an exclusive peek inside the original 100-year-old locker rooms that contain lockers belonging to course regulars including Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, and the Three Stooges. This locker room was also featured in a scene from the movie Wall Street! At the end of the tour, we'll finish at the Van Cortlandt Golf Course Clubhouse for some food and drinks from their cafe!
