Prospect Park


Since the DC cherry blossoms are over, My girlfriend and I decided to go to Prospect Park in Brooklyn to see them. What's the neighborhood like? Is it safe?

Go to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, this is where the cherry blossom festival takes place.


Easy to get to, safe, right near the Brooklyn Museum, a few blocks to Grand Army Plaza, the main Brooklyn library, Prospect Park and the beautiful neighborhood of Park Slope.

Log onto www.prospectpark.org for information on the free trolley service that goes to various Brooklyn sites on the weekends.

Take the #2 or #3 train to Eastern Parkway/Brooklyn Museum and the gardens are around the corner....it is one of my favorite places to visit in all of NYC.
