Brooklyn Botanical Garden: My Favorite Place

The Brooklyn Botanical Garden is my favorite place. It is an extremely well-maintained natural and educational oasis in the heart of Brooklyn.

The Rose Garden

I have been trying to get a job there for years, to no avail. I love it that much.

Wave Hill and the New York Botanical Garden are lovely too, but given their more suburban Bronx environments, don’t offer the same sense of respite in my opinion. I also think that BBG as the Brooklyn garden is known, wins hands down for how much they do with such a small amount of land.


In Spring…that building is a gorgeous event space

This post is really just an excuse to post some of the hundreds of photos that I have taken in the Garden over the years.  I urge you to visit the Garden if you ever visit New York City. It’s a hop, skip and a jump from Manhattan via car or public transit, and the surrounding area is beautiful too, with Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum and Brownstone Brooklyn right next door.

If you like my work, I sell my photos as various types of prints and also take commissions.  You can see and learn more at my WP LensMoments portfolio site.


The garden’s varied micro-habitats attract photographers and artists.  I enjoyed manipulating this pond image.


This picture-perfect bloom, found in one of the conservatories, is featured in my Society6 shop!

The Brooklyn Botanical Garden is famous for its flowering fruit trees (also in my shop!)


And for its authentically laid out Japanese Garden. I took an image of the Japanese Garden, created a digital collage and feature it in my VIDA shop!

There’s a HUGE field of bluebells in the spring

Finally, the logo image from my photography book features a plant image captured in their subtropical conservatory.  The subtropical area is a must-visit, and a great place to warm up in the winter!
