If you're visiting New York City on holiday and need a break away from the crowds and chaos, spending a few hours at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden can be a wonderful change of pace. It's especially lovely to visit in the springtime when so many flowers and trees are in bloom - as I had the chance to do recently while in the city for a weekend getaway.
Here I'll share some photographs from my visit as well as tips and information for planning a trip to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden yourself. If you love natural wonder and beauty it is definitely a must-visit destination when in the NYC area.
Yes, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is an interesting contrast to the New York one. I think the BBG perhaps has more of a focus on flowers and flowering plants, at least that was my impression on having now visited both in the spring season.
The purple and pink tulips are so beautiful! So Brooklyn has its own botanical gardens, huh? :) It's great for its residents who can use it as a park to stroll and take children out to play and learn something. I enjoyed your article and photos.
Thank you for the lovely tour! I live in Denver and I love our Botanic Gardens which are NOT 100 years old. I've heard many good things about the BBC and hope to see it one day.
