PICNIC: Free Visit at WAVE HILL - ART and Scenic Walk

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!

    Lily, I read on the Wave Hill website that "self-guided" groups have to pay the $8.00 admission fee and are not permitted to enter during the free admission time on Sat from 9-12. They also said that the van has limited capacity and may not be able to accommodate a large group unless it is arranged in advance. I would like to come so I think I'm going to take Metro North (which is more convenient for me) and try to meet you all at Wave Hill.

    People want to bring food, you can -- or just buy something at the cafe, ok? ;-)

    You can take Metro North to Riverdale as an alternative to the subway. The shuttle picks you up from there also.
    I went on meetup to Wave Hill with another group and as it says under "etiquette" on their website, they don't allow any organized groups to come in. If you show up at the shuttle as a group they may not take everyone. We walked from the Riverdale station of Metro North and the group stopped a certain distance from the main gate so that people could walk in 2 or 3 at a time. They still seemed to figure out that we were a group and they didnt like it.

      You are correct, Barbara, if I call in as a group, it'll cost us $25 to RESERVE, to announce that we are coming as a group.
