523 New York Botanical Garden Tips
There is little walking if you just visit the Orchard show and shop/cafe on the way out.
You get a cocktail at the start and there are random tables set up with peanuts you can munch on.
Don't dress too warm, the exhibit is very humid. There is a free coat check, however.
Bring your snacks with you. Nothing of note on the blvd. walking down to garden.
Subway there... no problem. MetroNorth very quick and across the street - easy
There w was car parking in the botanical garden, very well organized
The Orchid Show
The handicap elevator to enter the Library building for the Herschfeld exhibit was broken.
Dress comfortably and in layers in the chilly weather. Make sure to wear walking shoes.
