Cherry Blossom Watch
You haven’t experienced spring in New York until you’ve walked through the Cherry Esplanade at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in full bloom.
The peeps at the Gardens take blossom season very seriously and there is even a tree-by-tree blossom graphic that will tell you which trees are in which state of splendor. Check out the Plants in Bloom report on the website to plan your visit like a pro.
The gardens are open Tuesday-Sunday and many trains from the city stop right at the park entrance at either 150 Eastern Parkway or 990 Washington Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11225. Check out how to get there easily here.
