It’s Like the Botanical Garden. But Quieter.

Whereas the greenhouses at the New York Botanical Garden and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden showcase curated exhibitions that scream do not touch, Wave Hill’s conservatory contains an unfussy but well maintained collection of plants that you may touch — but gently and at your own risk.

Wave Hill, a private estate turned public garden in the Bronx, is an ideal place to paint, geek out on succulents or simply nap.
