Time Out says

The Hill in New York is an actual recreation of the iconic Wimbledon landmark on this side of the Atlantic. From July 8 through 10, about 1,000 New Yorkers each day will get to immerse themselves in the British experience by Brooklyn Bridge Park.

What's more, the arrival of the site coincides with the British tournament's finals, so ticket holders will get to watch the last few matches as if they were on the other side of the world.

Fun fact: Watching the Wimbledon championships on the Hill first became a tradition in the 1990s when the spot became the home of "Henmania," a tribute to former British number one player Tim Henman. The original Hill actually turns 25 this year.

Event participants can also expect surprise live performances, on-premise activations, iconic hampers, Wimbledon-inspired gin cocktails served at the bar and the presence of actual tournament stewards. Each day will also feature a fun after-party complete with awesome DJs. Who even needs to fly to the United Kingdom anymore?
