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

It provides an insider's persecutive for a rich supplement to NYBG's Impressionism: American Gardens on Canvas exhibition.

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!

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.

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.

It's in a nice area of the Bronx, right next to Fordham University. The Garden has parking for about $15 which I would suggest using and alternately you might find parking in the streets (so give yourself some time to find the free parking). Public transportation is not very convenient in that area (trains are far from there and buses are slow). The grounds are well-kept and beautiful. It feels like you leave NYC while you're inside because of the tall trees that block the views of the city. Had a really pleasant stroll and the staff was very helpful. I recommend it and will definitely return.

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.

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.

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)
