Philipse Manor, a neighborhood located within the Village of Sleepy Hollow is a unique enclave rich in beauty & history.
The Hudson River is just down the block! "Since childhood I have longed for a home on the Hudson....here is a beautiful residential park on a high plateau, which sweeps right down to the water's edge at the widest point in the Hudson River-the wonderful old Tappan Zee, over three miles in width" "I promised my children that we would have a canoe, a row boat and a motor boat, and I tell you we are going to have some good times"*

All residents are invited to join The Philipse Manor Garden Club - meetings are held regularly in members homes.

The club maintains the beautiful planting island located at the south entrance to Philipse Manor and the smaller stone planter at the north entrance. The plantings are made possible through community donations.
Garden club members also decorate a tree at Phelps Memorial Hospital and make wreaths for community organizations as well as contributing to the cost of decorating the Historical Society. Each month a flower arrangement or plant is placed upon the front desk of The Warner Library by a member of the club. For membership info call Shelley Robinson : 631-7028.
