In New York City, Wave Hill overlooks the Hudson River in the Bronx. Created by financier George Perkins in the early 20th century, the garden opened to the public in 1967. The 28-acre garden is known for its intimate and dynamic design, along with its sweeping views of the river and glass houses filled with plant treasures.
The garden’s site — perched on the crest of steep slope — keeps Wave Hill warmer in winter, cooler in summer and relatively humidity-free, allowing many exotic species to thrive in the landscape.
Ngoc Minh Ngo’s photographs and Thomas Christopher’s prose pay tribute to the garden’s beauty in all seasons.
