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.

Phenominal! I've sailed on the Adirondack previously for sightseeing tours. It was a great experience to be on board and see what the schooner is capable of. The crew was helpful and informative even though they were busy sailing the boat to victory! I can't wait for next year's regatta.
Be a part of the New York Classic Week races aboard the schooner Adirondack. The stunning bright work and beautiful classic lines of the historic vessels participating in the races have been specially maintained by their owners and offer great photo opportunities! Each race each day will have a different course within New York Harbor.
Some of the famous sites you’ll view along the way are:
- The New York City skyline
- Twenty-acre Battery Park at the southern tip of Manhattan, where artillery has been stationed over the centuries
- Ellis Island, the immigrant doorway to America from 1892 to 1954
- The Statue of Liberty, a French gift that arrived in New York Harbor in 1885 and has come to represent our nation’s freedom and ideals
- The New York City waterfalls
Lunch includes fruit, gourmet sandwiches, chips and dessert. Complimentary champagne, wine, beer and soda will be provided.
