The New York Botanical Garden is a museum of plants, an educational institution, and a scientific research organization. Founded in 1891 & now a National Historic Landmark, it is one of the greatest botanical gardens in the world.
Gorgeous in any weather, but best in spring
Tram, Native American garden
The train show was fun!
Holiday train show! Parking is a mess
More expensive on the weekends, but it's worth it to escape the chaos of the city for a few hours.
I love it, my lady and I came to the train show, 12/5/15. The trains and all the New York City landmarks made out of tree material. Highly recommend.
Garden at night.
After viewing the Frida Kahlo exhibit (which smashed attendance records for NYBG) I signed up for membership! Lovely grounds, informative staff, good restaurant. Going back for train show!
Love everything about it!
The guided toor of the Terrarium. The rise garden. The tran that takes you around. The children's center.
Such a wonderful experience. #herbarium #love #nature #flower #foliage #fall #joy
Good for all seasons, especially pretty foliage. Take a tram tour
This is a beautiful area to relax and look and all the beautiful flowers and plants:-). I've been here on a school trip and it was absolutely stunning. Even if it's raining it beautiful 😂😂
Amazing place. Get your bearing by taking the tram ride near the entrance. So many great activities for the kids. Total Zen through this huge park.
The rock garden is a morning meditation treat. It's a gem you don't want to miss in the Bronx.
Come as early as you can! Start with the tram tour because it gets busy as the day goes on. Then work your way through the Haupt building and the library!
Nice educational program for kids, membership includes only certain number of parking tickets, great in fall
Absolutely gorgeous. I hear its free on Wednesdaysm
Bring your walking shoes!!!!
Find street parking. $125th parking fee
Always love it here. The Frida show is a little disappointing if you've visited her home /museum in Mexico City. Nevertheless the gardens are so splendid, you're just thrilled you made the schlep!!
There are very worthwhile after hours events throughout the year with drinks and music. Check out the calendar
Love the gardens, the events and the food and the Hudson Garden Grill is delicious!
truly a gem hiding in plain sight within the vastness of this crowded city. well-maintained, frequently upgraded, with plenty of acres for strolling, breathing, observing, listening to the elements.
Great park! Perfect day trip with family and friends. Currently on expo: frida kahlos casa azul and a few selected paintings. Entrance fee a bit steep at $25, 10% discount if you pay with mastercard.
Love this place. My daughter got married here. 🎈🎈
Always a great day at the garden... membership with worthwhile
Lovely grounds! Peonies and cherry blossoms
The orchid show is a must see!
excellent spot to get out of the city and some beauty. the Orchid Show is naturally a highlight in the Spring. take the tram ride around the garden - educational and fun.
Awesome nature escape in the city. Very quick trip on metro north from grand central. On the weekends, get the city ticket ($4.50 one way). Def an nyc must see.
Beautiful place to spend a day with your family
Staff are very helpful. At the Southern Blvd. entrance they will call a cab for you and do it with a smile.
One of the best reasons to cross the GWB. Become a member and stay informed...great events all year long meld art, music and gardening
Beautiful location to enjoy nature. Ticket prices are expensive tho...
First visit was for the holiday train show - really impressive collection of NY landmarks and the level of detail is incredible. Great for kids just remember this is a see and not touch exhibit.
Train show is the best!
Nice garden, good shows, free wifi in all the park
Like the Holiday Train Show
If you are coming for the holiday train show and aren't a member, come early because it gets crowded fast.
Holiday train show is a MUST. Go on a bar car night!
The holiday train show is a nice exhibit, lots of intricate details. But not sure that it's really the best exhibit for kids. Super crowded on the weekends.
Beautiful and exotic plants in the middle of the concrete jungle. Must go during the holidays for Christmas trees, Bar Car Nights and the Holiday Train Show
Must if you live in NY
Nice place to spend lazy day.
Beautiful! Good place to stroll through in any season.
Great conservatory, membership is good value for locals
