Is there a better place to be than Wave Hill on Labor Day weekend -- Saturday, Sunday or Monday? Pull up a Wave Hill chair and take in the wonderfully tender care that its gardeners lavish on the rolling lawns and gardens. Gaze across the mighty Hudson and appreciate the dedication of the Perkins family, who not only gave Wave Hill to the city a few decades ago but labored so hard to preserve the Palisades and the spectacular views. Wander through Glyndor Gallery and soak up the Native American perspective on the Hudson River Valley. But if you must labor over the weekend, let it be the charming one of choosing one delectable dish after the other at the Sunday Brunch in the historic Mark Twain Room -- reservations by 4 p.m. Friday -- and maybe a session at the Family Art Project -- water lilies at the Aquatic Garden! -- with the youngsters dearest to you.

Thursday, September 3, Gallery Tour: Join an Exhibition Interpreter for a tour of The Muhheakantuck in Focus: Contemporary artists look at “the river that flows both ways” through projects that explore the First Nations’ engagement with the river and the impact of Henry Hudson’s arrival. Also on view is Audrey Hasen Russell’s Slant Branch Souvenir (Thinkin’ on You), a large-scale installation in the Sunroom. Tours take place Wednesdays and Thursdays at noon, and at 2 p.m. on Saturdays. Free with admission to the grounds. Glyndor Gallery, Noon.
