The New York Botanical Garden

I won’t beat around the bush, the Bronx Botanical Garden obviously isn’t the same as it would be in the Spring/Summer. Few flowers are in bloom but the grounds are expansive and the trails are good for the thighs. I stopped reading the placards after 10 mins and focused on the silence and intricate beauty of the forest. In an episode of Sex and the City, Carrie Bradshaw once said, “One of the best things about living in a city like New York is leaving it.”

For the same reason we value Central Park, The Garden lent the semblance of an escape.
