Through programs in the arts and sciences, Wave Hill is dedicated to fostering connections between people and nature. Wave Hill gets it’s name from the house on its gorunds. Wave Hill House has been the home of not just one prominent family - but of many. Though unrelated, each successive resident shared an appreciation of Wave Hill’s relationship to the Palisades, the Hudson River, and the estate’s role in the preservation of Riverdale as a distinctive community.

The real attraction here however is the spectacular public garden and cultural center overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades in the Bronx. The Internationally acclaimed gardens provide a stunning setting and are well worth a visit. The horticultural collections contain 1,151 genera and 3,236 species of plants. The collection encompasses a wide range of hardy and tender plants outdoors, a representative group of tender plants in the main greenhouses, and rock garden plants in the T.H. Everett Alpine House. Open year-round, the grounds are easily accessible by car or public transportation.
