For the first time in nearly 80 years, NYBG has a corpse flower on display! Also known as the titan-arum, Amorphophallus titanum last bloomed here in 1939, and our current specimen looks just about ready to unfurl. These unpredictable flowers—some of the largest on earth—have a brief but vivid blooming period of just 24–36 hours, and that's after 10 years of careful tending by our horticulturists.

We expect the plant to live up to its name in the next few days with a vibrant color and fragrance that should make clear why it's called the corpse flower. Head through to learn more, and keep following us here to find out the best time to see this botanical spectacle!

As sun sets over Manhattan tomorrow night, June 9, don't forget to look toward the heights of the Empire State Building. They'll be lighting their spire with NYBG green in honor of the Garden's 125th Anniversary—a sight that's hard to miss! #NYBG125

The gardens are dazzling any time of year, but I love them during the holidays. The train show really is incredible. The work that goes into the creation of the buildings will dazzle architects, artists, and really anyone with an appreciation for nature and craftsmanship. If you're going to the train show, go late... the crowds (with screaming kids) are virtually non-existent and the conservatory really sparkles at night!

A true new york destination. It has activities and things to see that will satisfy couples and families alike. Wet got our membership as a means to have weekend activities for our toddler, and it's proved to be a great investment.

Great for the family, great for a nice walk, visit first thing in the morning for a very quiet experience and less traffic. The holiday train exhibit is a must-see with landmarks of New York's past and present recreated with plant material. Highly recommend this place.

An absolutely beautiful place. The conservatory is a tropical paradise inside a concrete jungle. VERY EXPENSIVE outing, so we rarely go - but we love it when we do visit

Beautiful place to visit any time of the year. Little bit pricey especially during Train Show. If you coming by train I strongly advise you to consider packages sold at Metro North stations including Grand Central . The package provides train ride and all around ticket to Garden at significant discount. Package available year round from vending machines and ticket office. Package is not available at Botanic Garden train station.

It's pricey but at least your money is going for a good cause. The food is also good in the cafeteria. The gift shop carries really good items and the ambience is great. You get to see flowers trees and shrubs and the Occasional giant turkey if you are lucky. I go annually and wish I went more often.

Beautiful. Virgin forest with waterfall and canyon nice. Can be boring. Good source of information, research, study, especially if there is any particular species you would like to see. Gift store also great books on botany, and pots and planters.

As a tourist location, one of the best in NYC. Institutionally historical and relevant. As a research institution, amazing. Great staff. Stay off the grass. But why an extra ticket for the special events? And are the taking over the grocery store? Maybe I'd lower it to 4 stars if that's the case.
