This week we are sending you up to the Bronx. Your destination? Wave Hill, which is the perfect place to welcome spring. Truly an oasis in the city, Wave Hill is a 19th-century estate set on 28 acres featuring beautifully manicured gardens and stunning views of the Hudson River. Bring a book and spend the day relaxing. Reserve your tickets (Adults; $10 Children; $4) here. If you’re so inclined, Riverdale Park, full of woodlands and trails, is just a short walk.
For dinner head to head to Arthur Avenue, also known as the Bronx’s Little Italy. Get there before 6 p.m. so you can peruse the offerings of the Arthur Avenue Market. For dinner, our recommendation is Çka Ka Qellu for traditional Albanian fare. Albania and Italy are neighbors, separated by a sliver of sea, and the Bronx contains a large population of people from both countries. For dessert, do not, we repeat, DO NOT leave the Bronx without stopping by Lloyd’s for some of its famous carrot cake.
