Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Brooklyn is surprisingly green, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a great place to spend a day breathing in the fresh air. The garden is located right next to the Brooklyn Museum, making for a full day’s worth of activities. Fifty two acres of world-famous botanical gems will leave you in awe, as you walk around the soothing Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden, and the Cherry Esplanade, with its stunning blooms. The reflective nature of water is a central theme in this garden, as you will notice when looking at the Lily Pool Terrace, which is home to almost one hundred different kinds of water lilies.
Also featured at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is the Steinhardt Conservatory, with its collection of exotic plants, and the C.V. Star Bonsai Museum. Even if the weather is a bit chilly, the garden is worth a trip, as it contains plants and exhibits that thrive in all climates and seasons.
