Wave Hill

4900 Independence Ave.

Find a natural contrast to the city amid the exquisite gardens at Wave Hill, perched on a bluff overlooking the Hudson River. The 28 acres of gardens and woodland here were established on the grounds of an 1843 Bronx estate to serve as a respite as well as a showcase for horticulture. The sweeping lawns, stunning views, art gallery, and cafe are well worth the one-hour subway or train ride from midtown Manhattan, made easy by free shuttle service.
