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 such a wonderful evening even though the passengers were afraid it was going to rain, it didn't and once the storm passed, we had the most beautiful relaxing evening. I would encourage it for couples or for groups of friends.
The staff was fabulous! They offered reassurance that we were safe because of the weather. They were very kind and efficient.
Fortunately, they had blankets because it did get cold!
Thanks for offering this as an event.
Experience New York City lights like you never have on this sail past the bright and beautiful borough of Manhattan.
Climbing aboard Adirondack or Imagine, Classic Harbor Lines’ 80-foot wooden pilot schooners, you will quickly forget the mayhem and noise of Manhattan street life as the colors before you paint a picture of the most famous city in the world. You’ll take in the famous Manhattan skyline as it was meant to be seen — from the water. You will also enjoy spectacular views of Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge. The fastest resident sail vessels in the New York Harbor are the Schooners Adirondack and Imagine. They held the record finishes in the Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race for 14 consecutive seasons (1994 – 2007). Though they are light and lively sailing vessels, they are also quite comfortable, with ample deck space and seating for up to 49. They were built and designed for taking groups of people on spectacular sightsailing adventures by Scarano Boatbuilding of Albany, NY. They are operated by Coast Guard certified captains and extremely friendly and talented crew.
