It was freezing cold on the day I was there, but the garden is still lovely. I just can't imagine how crowded it would be on a nice, spring day. Being crowded to this extent, one is unable to walk around others who stand in...More

A great spring day to walk around and enjoy the gardens. A little pricey $15 to park and $20 to enter. It does include a tram ride around and a full day at the gardens. A nice lace to walk around and enjoy being. Outside

Arrived just after opening time on 4/18. Headed over to see the orchids first before touring the grounds. There were a reasonable number of people meandering through the Conservatory. There were every kind, color, and shape of orchid you could imagine. Next I toured the...More

The NYBG doesn’t care about their customers. Yes, the plants are beautiful, but fundamentally they have interrupted their “stewardship” responsibilities as disdain for their customers. They open and close exhibits on a whim with no notice. Perhaps this for the best in terms of conservatorship,...More

One of the best places in NYC to visit, stroll the grounds, enjoy the work of hundreds of horticultural professionals as they maintain a garden for all seasons. Several hundred acres of flowers, trees, and art.

From the moment we got on the line to enter the parking lot, to the long ticket line to the crowds in the Conservatory I knew this would be a long visit to see the annual Orchid Show. First, you pay $15 to park at...More

Just completing a one year membership. Always beautiful any time of the year. Always different. Can be crowded, but have taken a membership several times to fully experience the gardens year round.
