Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a breath of fresh air among the hustle and bustle of the city.
They have a large pay per hour type parking lot right next to the gardens. $15 per adult- not bad! Lots of walking and benches to enjoy the...More
Lovely paved paths make for easy walking or rolling along in a chair...Beautiful foliage and some indoor gardens make this a tranquil spot to get away from urbanity..A cafe operates year round as well.
The Botanic Garden is adjacent to Prospect Park, but its prohibitions on ball playing and the like, and also on bike riding, make it preferable for quiet wandering, even in the winter when nothing is blooming.
Highlights during the year are the Cherry Blossom festival...More
We are so blessed to have membership in this hidden gem in the boro of Brooklyn.
Something to see each month but better in the more stable weather months.
On line calendar gives the activities and events that are offered in the Garden.
My parents and I were in Brooklyn for the afternoon and decided to visit the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Many of the plants were dormant in Oct but it was still magical to walk around and enjoy all the open space and trees. We will definitely...More
We planned to go to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden tomorrow. Looks like definite rain... will it be miserable walking around, with umbrellas, of course? Should I ditch those plans and come up with something else? Ideas? We aren't museum people, besides I figure the museums will be crowded on a rainy day. ;-) We don't mind if we get a little wet, just don't want to be miserable and drenched. We arrive to NYC this evening, so I can't alter and go today. Have tickets for a matinee on Sunday, so...More

If it's drizzling, or raining lightly, it'll be fine, and it will smell amazing. If it's pouring, then you'll be drenched, which you say you don't want to be. I'd say make the call when you see what the weather is like. The Brooklyn Museum is right there; I know you say you're not museum people, but it could be a back-up plan in case you get there and you decide it's just too wet. And it won't be crowded.

The TKTS Seaport closes at 6.00pm so dash over there after you've checked in. On any of your nights, take the time to view the 9/11 Memorial after dark too. The whole area is very nice at night with the subtle lighting of the Memorial and the lights in all of the surrounding buildings. Note that they close off the 9/11 Memorial at 9.00pm but you can still walk around the perimeter after that time. I'm not sure I'd just go from Pier 11 to E34th St and back on the East River Ferry. Is it...More

Will be in NYC at end of June. Lady Friend wants to go to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. We'll be in town for 4 full days. I personally think we could spend the morning somewhere else but that's what she wants. Is it worth the time? She loves flowers and such. Will we be Wowed?

Sure it's worth the time if you love gardens. Where did you want to the spend the morning instead? If you're going to be in Central Park, an alternative to going to Brooklyn would be the Conservatory Garden in Central Park.
