Fifth Avenue and 107th Street. A comfortable place to sit or stroll. I'd much rather go there than the High Line. It's down-to-earth. And there's nobody there.

It's kind of tucked away, kind of old fashioned -there is nothing trendy about it. It's just gorgeous and peacefully uncrowded - that's all ...

Very picturesque with a stunning design. It's a very beautiful garden that flies under the radar. It lies in the northern end of the park and is worth a nice walk up there.

I discovered the Conservatory Garden almost by chance a few years ago - unless you live or work in the area, you don't necessarily just walk past it (I saw it from the bus driving down 5th Avenue coming from Harlem). The Conservatory Garden is a beautiful and peaceful little oasis in the city, beautifully kept. It reminds me a... More

An amazing garden. Good bathrooms. Safe feeling. Take subway to 96th and walk to 5th to garden - a good route. Then walk south through the Park to enjoy New York at play or continue on 5th to visit the museums.

These comparatively little-known gardens are stunning! There are actually three gardens: a formal Italian garden, a traditionally French one, and an English cottage garden. Plan on spending an hour or two to see the latter during the spring--the winding paths reveal groupings of tulips and daffodils (all labeled, different ones each year) that beg to be photographed. Fountains and/or charming... More

That this is slightly out of the way for many tourists makes the garden very appealing. The formal layout is relaxing and provides charming spots to see fountains, water lilies blooming, beautiful flowers and restful benches, strategically placed. The grand entrance, on 5th Avenue, is majestic with a marvelous antique gate from France that previously graced the now demolished Vanderbilt... More

If Central Park were Manhattan's green oasis, the Conservatory Garden would be the water. This garden is not only Central Park's must-go attraction but should also be your top destination of a NYC tour! Here, you will find a beautiful, three-sectioned gardens, each section with its own theme. Prepare your best camera and get ready to be dazzled by the... More
