Wave Hill is deeply honored to have been voted the “most-loved cultural venue” by New Yorkers for Time Out New York’s first-ever Love New York Awards! A public garden and cultural center in Bronx, Wave Hill outranked all other neighborhood winners, including the Highline, the Apollo Theatre and the American Museum of Natural History—including Bronx’s own New York Botanical Garden and Bronx Zoo—to win the city title and this touching tribute.

From historic buildings and contemporary art galleries to engaging public programs and stunning garden vistas, Wave Hill’s ever-changing landscape will inspire, no matter the season, inviting visitors to connect to nature. Green spaces have never been more relevant, tranquil oases that can make us feel better even as the pace of urban life accelerates.

“Time Out New York’s award could not be more timely,” commented Wave Hill President and Executive Director Karen Meyerhoff. “It affirms everything we stand for—a beautiful place of peace and community where everyone is welcome and where innovative programs help engender a deep connection with nature and the arts. For all of us, the award validates that Wave Hill is needed now more than ever.”

“This is a tremendous recognition for Wave Hill,” added Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. “In The Bronx, we all know how special Wave Hill is, and I am proud not only of this amazing acknowledgment they have received but also for the hard work and love Wave Hill’s staff has put into making the garden a magical place.

Wave Hill is a beautiful, relaxing and romantic place filled with amazing gardens and the best view in all of New York City. This award confirms the beauty of our wonderful borough and shows the excellent hard work and dedication that is characteristic of The Bronx, inspiring others around the city. I encourage visitors from all over the world to come see Wave Hill when they are planning their trip to our city and our borough.”
