Took Metro 6, got off in 103 Street, 5 min walk towards Central Park, then another 5 min walk towards north and there was the conservatory garden, beautifully landscaped, carefully manicured, saw many volunteers happily tending the flower beds. My favourite spot was the tiny lily pond with a bronze statue holding a water bowl, nicely tugged under a big... More

Although I was there in May and most of the flowers were not yet in bloom, you could tell by "the bones" of the gardens that this would be a special place later in June. Felt a little isolated there and was glad I had someone with me.

What a beautiful surprise this garden is. Not really advertised it sits in the north-east corner of Central Park and is just magnificent. Do not miss this gem.

This is located up on the north side of Central Park at 105th, 5th. We combined it with other things we wanted to see on that day. It is so beautiful. The manicured gardens and fountains and all that green grass!!! The black iron-wrought Vanderbilt gates were huge and all of this was a great photo op. We walked under... More

Visit in the spring to see the Vanderbilt gate and also cherry blossoms. Beautiful weddings take place here. See the 3 dancing girls too. Go to the City of NY Museum afterwards (suggested donation), Jewish Museum (free on Saturdays), Cooper Hewitt or Guggenheim (Saturday night - pay what u wish).

If this is something you are interested in, get a permit. They are inexpensive but necessary. Also, have a back up plan in case of rain. My son planned to use the... More
