Wave Hill is a public garden that is owned by the City of New York.  It is comprised of two adjacent estates – Wave Hill House and Glyndor House.

When I visited, Wave Hill House was undergoing extensive renovations.   Both houses are on a hill, above the Hudson River and overlooking the Palisades.

Both houses have had quite a history with many prominent owners and visitors.  See http://www.wavehill.org/about/history/  for a full history of the site.   This garden is well worth the visit – the grounds are just glorious!
