Ride the Wave

Saturday, June 26, 2010

So, for the final of my travel related posts (at least I hope for a while), I'd like to introduce everyone to Wave Hill.  I can't believe I didn't know about this place while I actually lived in New York.  On Memorial Day Leigh, Jason, baby Drew, Scott and I drove up to Harlem and had a BBQ lunch at Dinosaur BBQ (if you can't get all the way up to Wave Hill, at least go to Dinosaur) and then headed up to the Wave Hill Botanical Gardens in Riverdale to walk off our lunch.  Wave Hill sits on the bluffs overlooking the Hudson and the large swath of land on the other side that Rockefeller bought up to maintain the pristine views.  The gardens are amazing, and the views are breathtaking.  You can buy a bottle of wine and drink it on the patio of the former residence.  And if you happen to be planning a wedding, I have no idea what their rates are, but it seems the ideal spot for a garden soiree.
