For almost a century the Brooklyn Botanic Garden has provided a natural respite from the city, housing over 12,000 varieties of indoor and outdoor plants. The 52 acre park is perfect for strolling, offering a nice combination of manicured rows and stretches of wild foliage. The large multilevel atriums showcase a number of habitats and their respective plant life. An interesting attraction is the Garden for the Blind, which features plants that have unique textures and are highly aromatic.
