The only word to describe my holiday trip to the New York Botanical Garden? Speechless.
Located in the Bronx, the New York Botanical Garden is unique among public places in America. Inspired by an 1888 visit to the Royal Botanic Gardens, botanists Elizabeth and Nathaniel Lord Britton determined that New York should house one of the world’s great botanical gardens. They launched a public campaign to establish this institution, and their new botanical garden was chartered by New York State in 1891.
