A LITTLE HIDDEN GEM IN THE BRONX! I love coming here. When I come here I get to enjoy all that beauty has to offer. Even throughout the pandemic, it was open for our enjoyment. All of the staff at NYBG are so kind and caring. It is a great place to visit to watch birds, butterflies and take pictures to enjoy for years to come. Highly recommend visiting at least 4 times a year; once for each season - in order for you to see the vast changes in the environment and to marvel at the beautiful display of natures art! This spot is more than just a garden, it is an outdoor classroom.Parents, take your kids here, teach them about nature, and teach them to respect our beautiful planet.

One of the best places to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Even when it gets crowded, there is always a place where you can find serenity among nature. There's always something interesting to see even in the winter. The rock garden is probably something that is overlooked by many but is a lovely and serene nook. The food is incredibly overpriced, so feel free to bring your own snacks and eat at one of the several picnic tables that they have available.

It was my first time here and it did not disappoint! Parking on site is $20 per car for the full day, easy to enter and walked around the conservatory since it was a rainy day. I bought tickets online, making the total be $60 ($30/person). Highly recommend coming to see the beautiful diverse flora from around the world, here in the Bronx. Bring your phone or camera (masks are optional currently). There are bathrooms throughout and plenty of photo op spots!
