Bursting with elaborate designs and kaleidoscopic color arrangements, this exhibit in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory at The New York Botanical Garden will delight nature lovers and enchant guests of all ages who love the beauty of nature. With the theme Key West Contemporary, you can step out of the bustling city and straight into the Florida Keys, where the dramatic beauty of a flourishing tropical garden is amplified by vibrant architecture that reflects this particular island's charm and ambience. The Enid A. Haupt Conservatory's sprawling glasshouse galleries are transformed into a modernist Key West estate garden, where an effusion of orchids -- including Vanda (rainbow orchids), Dendrobium (cane orchids) and Cymbidium (Asian corsage orchids) -- bloom among serene geometric reflecting pools, soaring angular pergolas and sleek benches.

It was a great way to be a tourist and see the Statue of Liberty and the cityscape of NYC without having to fight the crowds. It was very relaxing and a perfect way to spend the 85+ degree day. There is a brewery a couple doors down so we grabbed some chicken fingers and fries as our "picnic". The only thing I regret was not bringing a hat and camera!
Fair warining: I saw a couple of people on the trip before us that looked queezy when they unboarded. We were fine but I made sure we did not have empty stomachs.
You’ll experience the following on your 2 hour sail aboard the Adirondack:
- Heading south from Chelsea Piers and down the Hudson River to Battery Park, Schooner Adirondack passes by Ellis Island and sails out to the Statue of Liberty.
- Wind and time permitting, she will head toward Governors Island, breeze by the Financial District and tease her bow under the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River.
- Complimentary beer, soda, and water will be provided. (Note: the staff will serve a few rounds, but it is not an unlimited booze-cruise. They aim to create an elegant, relaxing, peaceful, and safe experience for all of the guests.)
The captain will be shutting off the engines and setting sail for as much of the trip as possible.
