Gardens within a Garden

An urban oasis, Wave Hill’s 28 acres sit high above the Hudson River with sweeping views and lots of open sky--an enchanting surprise for all the senses. Here nature is the springboard for workshops and walks, talks, contemporary art, live performances and more--there is always something to make, to learn or simply experience, each moment circling back to Wave Hill’s serene setting, inviting us to connect to nature in myriad ways.

Founding head gardener Marco Polo Stufano's first intention was for Wave Hill to be a beautiful respite for the people of the city. Now it's visited by people from all over the world.

The gardens at Wave Hill are like a jazz pianist's riff...always enroute, done once, never quite the same.
