Question: What's Nearby? 10 Places Near the Brooklyn Botanic Garden That Are Worth a Visit
The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is one of Brooklyn's most beloved destinations. Calmer than Coney and less brassy than than the Bridge, it's a remarkable oasis in New York's famously demanding urban jungle. Spend an hour here for the psychic equivalent of a good massage, a great yoga class, or a walk on the beach. It's also a place where children romp, lovers kiss, and old-timers sit and reminisce with friends. Brooklyn magic.
