Outstanding dusk/ evening display. Orchids displayed in all their glorly. Crowd was great, well dressed and well mannered. The music playing was well paired with the atmosphere. Not to mention the cocktails added a nice touch. Inexpensive evening and well worht the visit.

We braved a frigid wind tunnel-like walk to get to the Conservatory for the orchid exhibit and were glad we made it. With a couple of exceptions, every "climate" exhibit had been festooned with spectacular displays of dozens of orchids in full bloom. Some were in pots, some planted in beds, others in hanging baskets (hence the subtitle of the... More

Many years ago, I took a vacation in NYC where I live. The thought was that there was no need to travel further than the city's five boroughs to visit and see sights. One of our most favorite locations is the NY Botanical Gardens. Recently, the Botans presented its annual orchid show which is a wonder. This is a must... More

I never cease to be amazed by this place. Magnificent Greenhouses, dizzying stands of azalea, stunning herb gardens, a primaeval forest and charming old snuff mill. It is among my favorite places on earth. Get here at any cost if you are in the city, worth the short trip up to he Bronx.

The NY Botanical Garden is truly a little slice of heaven in the Bronx. A truly unique experience that can be enjoyed equally both solo or in a group. The grounds are truly spectacular and offer something everyone can enjoy. Woodlands, wetlands, nature trails, ancient forests, waterfalls and creatures small and large, both winged and web footed....furry and feathered. A... More

Simply beautiful and enchanting enabling you to walk into a world of flowers far removed from this Winter cold spell. Visually stunning, invigorating, well planned and just the right amount of warmth and comfort. You will not be disappointed, a photographer's dream world.
