I strongly suggest a visit to Arthur Ave before or after the show for the best Italian restaurants and bakeries.

I suggest driving and parking in the public parking lot. Webster Ave. can be taken straight to lot. It's on 190 something street. Its 20$ but worth it. Hassle free. When you get the ticket it says something about 30$. Don't worry. At the event ticket booth (which is also WILL CALL) they will validate your parking ticket and it will be 20$.

The weather was Cold and crisp but comfortable inside the show.. I wore Suitable clothing for the winter weather but didnt over layer. The usual gloves, scarf and hat was sufficient. Comfortable shoes are a must. Inside there was no need to remove or carry your coat. I did take off my scarf, gloves and hat though. Pictures were allowed, which was nice..

We brought some bagels and cream cheese - the cafe is nice but a tad pricey (muffin is 3.75 plus tax).

The MetroNorth station is right across from the gardens and only 5 stops from Grand Central Terminal.

The weather was Rainy. I wore a sweater and coat. Though the train show is inside the conservatory so no need to worry about the weather..

As one might expect, it was quite warm, especially inside the Conservatory, which is massive. Plan accordingly!

If you want to eat something quick go to the cafes that are there. If you want to relax and enjoy a meal the hudson grill is it. Make a reservation unless you go when its not crowded. Its a bit expensive and the portio s are big

The weather was clear with a full moon.. I wore casual clothes, but some couples were more dressed up. It was an elegant event..
