A national treasure, uniquely New York. Only 20 minutes from Grand Central Terminal and an unforgettable departure from the everyday for over one million visitors each year. As America's premier garden, The New York Botanical Garden has epitomized the iconic landscape of the northeast since its founding in 1891, serving not only as a cultivated escape in this busy metropolis, but a celebrated state historical site and National Landmark. Featuring world-renowned exhibitions, year-round arts and culture programs, rich educational programming for children and adults, and family-friendly activities for all ages, it is the city's greatest living museum—an urban oasis unlike any other. Summer brings flowering abundance to the 50 gardens and plant collections; fall creates a riot of color in the native forest, the last remaining old-growth woodland in NYC; winter welcomes New York City's beloved tradition, The Holiday Train Show, while spring and The Orchid Show celebrate the promise of a new season. NYBG is open year-round and can customize experiences for FITS, groups, and corporate/incentive events. On premise dining, event space and shopping makes The Garden a unique destination.
