We went to see the Frida Kahlo exhibits on July 3rd (July 4th holiday) so we expected lines. I highly recommend buying tickets online because of this. Still, there were lines to get into the gallery and the Casa Azul. Although, the selection of her work was disappointing, the Casa Azul and Conservatory exhibit on her gardens in Mexico were...

My friend and I stopped in the Botanical Garden on our way out of the city after a weekend trip. It was a beautiful way to spend a sunny afternoon. The winding paths through the different gardens were a pleasure to explore. From the azalea garden to the forest, you might forget that you're still in a big city! We... More

Went to Freda Khal exhibition on Saturday June 20th. We got rainy day and it would of been 10 times better if it was a nice weather but we still had tons of fun. Gardens are beautiful. Parking-we parked for free on the street outside of the garden. Watch out for the parking regulations!

First, let me say The New York Botanical Garden is a wondrous place: green, lush, magnificent buildings, convenient by train, subway or car. I have attended many exhibits there. Having studied so much about Frida Kahlo and the fact that there are so many offerings regarding her at this exhibition, including meals, I was a bit disappointed in the scope... More

NYBG is one of the jewels of NYC. For sure, it is the best botanical garden in NYC. Their exhibits are always well done. The tram ride around the grounds--the garden covers 250 acres--is delightful. I am a native New Yorker.I always make it a point to take visitors from out of town there. The new restaurant, Hudson Garden Grill,... More

A large piece of Heaven in the Bronx! I came on a bus trip to see the gardens and to visit the Frida Kahlo exhibit. Since the art was the main attraction for me, we walked to the library first. The exhibit was very well done - with explanations about Frida's life and art. Advertised was a display of Frida's... More

Went to see Frida Kahlo exhibits but left energized by the entire Garden. So easy to get to from Manhattan -- take the Metro North Harlem line at Grand Central a few stops to the Garden's own station in the Bronx. Walk for one minute in a safe area and there you are at the entrance! It was quite hot... More
