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 wonderfully lush and expansive garden really provides you with a lot to do if you take your time to really observe. One of my favorite locations is the Thain Family Forest. The exhibition collection is vast enough that you could spend all whole day, but also allows you to come into four shorter visits. I've come twice and have still not seem anything. I recommend this for a relaxing time

An absolute stunning display of nature, encompassing a variety of temperatures, flowers and tropic vibes. It is a refreshing experience contrary to the city's haste. Here you can truly stop and smell the orchids.

This place is MASSIVE! I've only been to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, this is much more vast. I went during the winter so it was pretty cold but what you see is beautiful and tranquil. You get to see the entire grounds covered in snow, the pools of water iced over and a lot less people. I noticed a few joggers and elderly people willing to brave the cold. The staff at the front was pretty friendly, the rest looked cold and bored lol Also just an FYI, I'm not sure where they check entry tickets but during the winter no one stopped me for entering, not sure if it's supposed to be free or employees didn't care :D Pros: - Well maintained grounds - Lots to see - Trolleys to drive you around - Great for family and dates Cons: - Restaurants in the area are pretty far (minus the few in the garden)

I first went here as a child with my Grandmother and Aunt. It was a nice experience. However, it wasn't until I took my lady here in 2014 that I REALLY for to enjoy the New York Botanical Garden for want it really is. We took the gardens in-house form of transportation to get from point A to B and enjoyed the view along the way. In addition to that, we took loads of pics to commemorate or time together. I would recommend to all gentleman looking for the perfect date with their lady to make this be THE destination. Definitely check out the Rise Garden while you're there. You won't regret it.

This is a short hop from the city to the wonderland of plants and gardens. In the Spring and summer It is a wonderful day to spend enjoying the outdoors, exploring the grounds and bring out the botanist. There are a couple of cafes on the grounds which is kind of expensive but when you need food at least it is in a nice setting. We’ve come here on a couple occasions for the Orchid show. Once during the day and for the evening and cocktails. It is a lovely date night if the girl loves flowers and what girl doesn’t but then it doesn’t have to be with a girl equality wise. The soft candle lit spaces and the arrangement of orchids in multiple rooms is amazing. It is really crowded at peak times ~6-8pm but after that the crowd thins out and then you can really enjoy. So I’d say come a little later and you don’t have to fight the hordes of people all trying to pose in front of every other orchid. There is a couple bars inside for drinks. This year to my dismay, the one room which is quite lovely with a fountain an Koi was blocked off for ‘VIPs.’

Such an amazing place to visit! There's SO MUCH GREEN just a 20-minute train ride from Midtown Manhattan. The gardens are amazing, and they change throughout the year, depending on what's blooming. NYBG also runs a lot of great exhibitions/programs, the Frida Kahlo one was phenomenal and the Holiday Train Show was truly impressive.
