Wave Hill is one of the hidden treasures of New York. Beautifully situated on terraced slopes overlooking the Hudson River and the Palisades of New Jersey, it is a bird-watchers paradise. Nothing beats the sight of thousands of redtail hawks and osprey floating on the thermals of the river below or soaring over the grounds of this stately garden.
Come in the Spring for the masses of glory of the snow and blue squill planted in the woodlands. Come in the Fall to see the Palisades across the river ablaze in reds, oranges and golds. Come in the summer to rest in the shade of the purple beeches or in the winter to see the evergreens draped in snow. Come anytime to enjoy art, history and tranquility. You won't regret a single moment.
