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

Beautiful garden in the heart of The Bronx! A beautiful oasis, with manicured gardens and wide-open spaces. An amazing NYC experience where Wednesday's get you a FREE ENTRY to their premises. Enjoy a picnic in their lush gardens and occasional special exhibitions. Public transportation is one way to get there, which is a bit tedious--driving is what I preferred and on-site parking is available for a reasonable rate. However, plenty of public parking is available within walking distance by Fordham University. ALSO, don't miss out on going to the historical Arthur Ave around the corner AND The Bronx Zoo!

I love this place, it is magnificent at the entrance, security at all the time and also they guide you to the place you want I go. Once you are in, you feel you are in paradise. The exhibits they have make you want to go back many times. The place easy to visit any time of the year, but the best if all is the train show. I won't tell you more, you have to visit the place and enjoy it. Sal

Great visit to the gardens yesterday. The fragrance of spring blossoms filled the air. The grounds looked spectacular. Another green oasis in the Bronx. Especially enjoyed the tram ride with John S. This man truly loves his job. We are looking forward to our next visit.

This serene atmosphere provides an amazing respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. I recommend signing up for the NYBG membership if you plan to visit the garden more than twice in a year. My membership has certainly paid off. I love coming to this place to unwind and watch nature in all it's beauty. If you're in the area, you should at least visit the NYBG once. A lot of the roses are in full bloom already. It's a sight to see! And it's much bigger than the one in Brooklyn.

A sprawling 250 acres, the New York Botanical Gardens is the perfect place to see some of the world's most beautiful flowers! In addition to the different individual gardens, the NYBG also offers a conservatory and special exhibitions which include impressionist painters works at the garden and the current exhibit Plants and Fungi which includes ten new research projects at the garden's herbarium. The Family Garden is a great place to bring kids, has food demonstration for both adults and kids and recipes and the origins of the ingredients in world renowned chef Mario Batali's dishes.

The New York Botanical Gardens continues to be one of the most beautifully serene surroundings in New York. Beautifully scenic with the atrium filled with beautiful birds living amongst the picturesque landscaped area, with benches to rest and enjoy the atmosphere. The gardens are always changing and always blooming with natures beauty, landscaped with meandering paths spotting special areas. Definitely the best place to rest and read in the outdoors surrounded by beauty. Check to see what special event or exhibit is being showcased on the day you are planning to visit the fragrant beautiful botanical gardens of New York City. Written by a person who visits and enjoys the gardens.

Couldn't be better. Wide array of gardens, flowers, historic buildings, fun kiosks. (The beatboxing pavilion using birds cries was simply fantastic!)

A great getaway spot from NYC. 25 bucks for one adult, so if two adults visit twice a year mite as well go get the membership it's 100 bucks a year. The conservatory is world famous and a national landmark. It houses a tropical section, desert, and rainforest. Also has a native forest as it would have been back in the native American days with native plants. You can also see native American petroglyphs. Cafe is way over priced so bring a backpack with drinks and snacks.
