Brooklyn Botanical Garden

The cherry blossoms are close to blooming at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.  Tuesday's are as usual, free days, so you should take advantage and check them out.

I know I have talked about this before, but it is truly amazing to get to walk down the Cherry Esplanade when the trees are blooming. A check of the website shows that the esplanade itself is still at pre-bloom:

The map is updated every weekday, so check before going!!

Another place to see some of these beautiful trees is on Roosevelt Island, along the shoreline facing Manhattan. I plan to do both in the next few weeks, but wanted to post here before the bloom, so you could plan on going, if you are in town, or if you live here.

Roosevelt Island trees
Getting to Roosevelt Island is easy, you can take the tram across, at the corner of East 60th Street and 2nd Avenue, and it will drop you off in the middle of the island. Or, you can take the F train, and get off at Roosevelt Island.  There are escalators to bring you up from the subway station, since it is down pretty far.
