It's Like a Monthly Mini-Vacation on Long Island.
It's easy to see why the 19th Century poet, William Cullen Byrant, wrote much of his nature poetry at his Long Island summer home. For just a few hours, you too can be Bryant's guest at a brand new poetry reading series that began this fall. You can take in the harbor views, admire the stained glass windows, and enjoy a reception that follows each reading at Bryant's home and historic landmark, Cedarmere. Located just a short train ride away from Brooklyn and Manhattan, it feels many miles and centuries away.
