Wave Hill Gardens, Bronx, NY

Built as a country home in 1843. In 1903 George W. Perkins, a partner of JP Morgan, purchased Wave Hall House, adding to the properties he'd been accumulating along the river. the gardens have evolved over the years. Across the river, Perkins' involvement was pivotal in preserving the majestic cliffs of the Palisades. In 1960 the family deeded Wave Hill to the City of New York. It is now a beautiful public garden of 28 acres.
