“a lovely botanic garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is pretty, varied, and lovingly cared for. See the Japanese gardens, the lily pond (go when the tulips are in bloom), the lilacs trees and rose gardens, the greenhouses. Or just sit on one of the lawns and listen to a multitude of different languages. It's a sweet place. Good gift shops too.

A great place to visit and wander and lose yourself in reverie. Worth the price of admission. Diversity and size surprised me.
