Did I mention that the weather was amazing during this trip? We had a small sun-shower during our ferry ride back from Liberty Island and it poured our last night in NYC, but other than that the weather was beautiful, sunny and bright.
Also, the Brooklyn Botanical Garden is amazingly picturesque. I took a lot of pictures during this venture (of which I will share some of the best). We went to the Botanical Garden after the Aquarium (which was after Coney Island, which was after the super-long subway ride – did I mention it was only early afternoon by the time we got to the Garden?).
We didn’t go into the greenhouses (there was simply too much to see), but you could see some of the plants through the windows. Had we not been on such a tight schedule we would have done a lot more, especially since it was a beautiful day for a walk.
Did I mention that there’s a Celebrity Path you can walk along? It’s made of stones with leaf imprints & the names of famous Brooklynites.
There were a lot more pictures, but that would take up most of the post and I must move on!
Besides, I’d like to share some of the Shakespeare Garden – a garden made of of plants mentioned by the Bard.
I probably spent more time than necessary in this Garden, but that’s what happens when you’re a theatre major.
Luckily there was a distraction by way of the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden!
If I lived in New York I’d spend a lot of sunny days in these gardens…
