Conservatory Garden

You won't find a better location than the Conservatory Garden, covering six acres, on Fifth Avenue at 105th Street. The French (north) garden has 20,000 tulips that bloom in spring, with the Untermyer Fountain—a gift of the Samuel Untermyer family in 1947—at its center. The English (south) garden has a reflecting pool filled with waterlilies and goldfish. The entrance gates are from Cornelius Vanderbilt's home, which was torn down in 1927. A permit to take pictures is $25; it's $200 to have the ceremony in the gardens. Free tours are given Saturdays at 11. Take the 2 train to the 110th Street stop or the M1, M2, M3, or M4 bus to 105th Street.
