Wave Hill

Our vote for prettiest place in the five boroughs? It's in the Bronx.

Wave Hill, W. 249th and Independence Ave. 718. 549.3200, was home to, among others, Mark Twain, Teddy Roosevelt, and Toscanini. But it's the 28 acres of gardens, lawns, woodland, and views of the Hudson that are so enchanting.

You'll find a wild English garden, a conservatory, a greenhouse, an herb garden, an aquatic garden, and a trail that makes its way through 10 acres of woods. If more people find out about it, it could completely blow the Bronx's tough-guy image.

Wave Hill is open Tuesdays through Sundays, admission is $4, and directions are here.
