New York Botanical Garden
Before leaving, you can browse the Shop in the Garden for gardening-themed gifts and souvenirs. After exploring the vibrant plant life, head next door to the Bronx Zoo to add an animal encounter for your itinerary.
The New York Botanical Garden is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10am to 6pm, and is closed Mondays, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. To get to the New York Botanical Garden by subway, take the B, D, or 4 train to Bedford Park Boulevard Station. From there, walk eight blocks down the hill on Bedford Park Boulevard to the end and turn left onto Southern Boulevard, walking one block to the Mosholu Gate entrance. To save 25 minutes of walking, get off the subway and take the Bx 26 bus east to the Garden’s Mosholu Gate entrance.
Amazing, the tour guides were so funny. Did the 72 hour ticket and was worth every penny. The night tour was the highlight. The tour of the Bronx and Yankee stadium was also really good. Get an early start in the mornings the traffic on the downtown loop is manic. Wish we had the time to do the Brooklyn tour. Will definitely use the bus again its a good way to see many sights in a short time and get your bearings of the city.
If you're in NY for a short time (1-4 days) and have a good idea of the activities you would like to do, this pass is great. If you are spending 4 or more days in NY and able to do lots of things, possibly the New York Pass would be a better option.We used our pass for Ripley's Believe It or Not Odditorium, Night Tour by Citysights and Top of the Rock. Night Tour by Citysights was HORRIBLE in cold weather. Ripley's was very cool. Top of the Rock offered great photo opportunity of the Empire State Building and, best of all, we skipped the line!
I'm normally not in that kind of tourism, but it was the best way to see all New York for the few first day to know where I would like to go back and also use it as a nice transportation between attractions! A great deal to really recommend!
