Passing through my old neighborhood the other day, I decided to make a pit-stop and visit Wave Hill in Riverdale, NY. Where Theodore Roosevelt's family, Mark Twain, and other notables once called home now is a 28-acre public garden overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades. Wave Hill makes one seriously beautiful place to visit -- and it's right here in New York City! Plus, there's a very cute gift shop and a cafe that served me the most divine latte...
FYI: Tuesday mornings -- FREE admission!
How to get here: Metro-North, Subway line #1, car, foot... click here for more info
So what's around your corner? In the comments section below please recommend a place near you that's really neat to visit *and* either free or on-the-cheap. Thanks!
See you next time,
