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.

From the refined back deck of the _Manhattan_’s observatory, or from her outdoor teak decks on the mahogany-trimmed bow, get an up-close and personal view of the giant sailing vessels as they race across the harbor in the New York Classic Week Races. Although elegant and extremely comfortable, the Manhattan will have no trouble staying tight on the trail of the speeding sailing vessels, as she can cruise up to 22 knots. This trip also features great views of the New York City Skyline, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
The open brunch includes a plentiful buffet spread of fresh baked bagels, muffins, pastries, seasonal fruit, glazed ham, spring mix salad, stuffed quiches, a waffle station with all the fixings, turkey sausage, spicy Bloody Marys, mimosas, juices, coffee and tea.
