The original Wave Hill house was built in the mid-19th century and bought in 1903 by politician and businessman George Perkins, who added and renovated a few building to accommodate his family and guests. An array of political and cultural celebrities stayed at various times, including Theodore Roosevelt’s family, Mark Twain and Arturo Toscannini.
The park is one of Riverdale best-known landmarks, a 28-acre estate on a Hill along the Hudson River, with a Historic mansion and landscaped lawns overlooking the waterway and New Jersey Palisades. Sometimes described by its employees and fans as Horticultural and Artistic and a gem in the Riverdalians’own backyard, the park offers chamber Music and jazz concern in the summer, performed amid flower Garden. It draws people from the neighbourhood and far beyond, who come in to walk or sit on the grass, read a book in the shade of a tree, admire the Sunset and the Views.
