What is WAVE HILL and why are you being asked to be wisked away from NYC to picnic?? You claim to be a New Yorker! Tsk tsk.
"Today, as one of 33 New York City-owned cultural institutions, Wave Hill (28 acres garden) provides an oasis of serenity and offers programs in horticulture, education and the arts."
We can get in for a FREE visit if we all arrive before 11:10am Saturday (otherwise, $8 admission fee)! They pick us up from #1 train station!
"Getting Here is Easy! Located only 30 minutes from midtown Manhattan, Wave Hill's free shuttle van transports you to and from our Front Gate and Metro-North's Riverdale Station, and the 242nd Street stop on the #1 subway line.
Take the #1 train to the terminus of the line at West 242nd Street. A free Wave Hill shuttle van meets passengers on the west side of Broadway in front of Burger King at 10 minutes past the hour, from 9:10am to 3:10pm. The shuttle van returns visitors to Broadway in front of Burger King, departing Wave Hill’s front gate on the hour, from noon until 5pm."
Yes, we WILL purchase water/light food at their cafe, and sit down for a picnic overlooking great scenery!
