New York is home to the Staten Island and Bronx Botanical Garden, but locals will tell you that the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is the spot to be. 52-acres of greenery located adjacent to Prospect Park, the Garden was founded in 1910 and features a Japanese pond garden, an herb garden and a native flora garden. Closed on Mondays, the Garden is open until 4:30 PM every other day, and visitors should check the website for any special event notifications. Regulars say that the cherry blossom festival in mid-May is worth the trek from just about anywhere, but if you're unable to make it then, the garden is fully in bloom and wonderful for viewing through mid-fall.
