Developed in partnership with Gardens by the Bay and Singapore Botanic Gardens, the exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx pays homage to the site’s iconic supertrees, dramatic vertical habitats, as well as the famed arches, a highlight of the National Orchid Garden. In the landmark Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, thousands of colorful orchids in every shape and size surround you, reaching up towering structures and clinging to overhead arches to create a horticultural spectacle. You’ll see NYBG’s exquisite orchid collection as well as varieties showcasing Singapore’s achievements in orchid cultivation, research and conservation.

“”The 17th annual Orchid Show is a dazzling tribute to Singapore, the vibrant “City in a Garden” where these storied flowers are an integral part of the culture and landscape. Developed in partnership with Gardens by the Bay and Singapore Botanic Gardens, the exhibition pays homage to the sites’ iconic Supertrees—dramatic vertical habitats, and famed Arches—a highlight of the National Orchid Garden.

This horticultural spectacle, set in the landmark Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, mesmerizes with thousands of orchids in every shape, color, and size.

Sakura Matsuri at Brooklyn Botanic Garden

April 27 – 28, 2019

Brooklyn Botanic Garden
900 Washington Avenue
Brooklyn

This annual, highly anticipated event draws multitudes of attendees as we all gather in celebration of the season, the beautiful blossoms from/of the cherry trees and enjoy all the many Japanese cultural offerings.

From taiko drumming, other musical performances (indie , punk, pop genres and others), martial arts demonstrations to dance performances, Kabuki Buyo dance and much more.

One needs a ticket for either or both days and you can head on over to the official website to learn more.  Members of the garden, as is the case with many other venues, get discounted access. Students and seniors get discounts as well.

Also, visit this page at the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation for info as well.

Please do keep in mind how this is merely a special event taking place over two days. You can always visit the garden on other days to experience the luscious pinks of the cherry blossoms as they’ll be in bloom for a period of time. We’ve done it repeatedly, paying close attention to the one day of the week when admission is free. Be sure to visit their site for details in that regard.

Nineteenth-Century Spiritualism and Stage MagicIn the 1850s, New York City was absolutely agog for the three young Fox sisters who claimed they communicated with the spirit world.

This trolley tour will explore the legacies of  Spiritualists and stage magicians, two groups that often came into conflict with one another. Visit the gravesites of many bizarre and fascinating practitioners (including one of the Fox sisters) of these two nineteenth-century phenomena.

Green-Wood – 25th Street at 5th Avenue, Brooklyn – Meet inside the main gate.Take the “R” train to 25th Street in Brooklyn and walk up the hill one block and into the Cemetery.

Free parking is available.

Green-Wood’s Death Café continues in spring and summer. In a small group, participants will share their thoughts on death and dying in a supportive environment where they can feel comfortable talking about these universal, but rarely discussed, topics.

The Death Café is inspired by centuries-old European salons where people gathered informally to discuss philosophical, political, or scientific ideas. The first Death Café was started by British entrepreneur Jon Underwood in 2010 as a way to “increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their lives.” To date, over 5,000 of these meetings have taken place in countries around the world.

Green-Wood’s death educator Amy Cunningham, an independent funeral director, leads the Death Café. Light refreshments will be served.

Green-Wood’s death educator Amy Cunningham, an independent funeral director, leads the Death Café. Light refreshments will be served.
