  • Brooklyn Botanic Garden

    Brooklyn Botanic Garden

    1000 Washington Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11225
    718-623-7200 Right next to Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a verdant escape from the pulsing, postlapsarian havoc of the city. The 52-acre garden is a seductive expanse of wisteria-covered pergolas, towering oaks, flowering crab apple trees, and a vivid palette of exotic flora. Stroll through the Cranford Rose Garden and smell the heady perfume of hybrid tea roses, or walk to the overlook and its panoramic view. The most enticing section of the park is the recently restored Japanese hill and pond framed with weeping willows and a majestic torii that's painted an electric vermilion. The Garden's Steinhardt Conservatory also houses a temperature-controlled rainforest full of banana trees, philodendrons, and other waxy-leafed plants. Take the 2 or the 3 train to the Grand Army Plaza stop. Hours: April-September,Tue-Fri 8am-6pm, Sat & Sun 10am-6pm; October-March, Tue-Fri 8am-4:30pm, Sat & Sun 10am-4:30pm More >>

    The Gutter

    200 N. 14th St. Brooklyn, NY 11249
    718-387-3585 Before Williamsburg's drunkest roll down Bedford Ave. towards their tony lofts, they raze pins at the Gutter, the best bowling alley/bar in the area. Open late, it often features an astronomical wait for the lanes, but drinks are cheap regardless and the atmosphere is as sincerely low-key as this neighborhood gets. More >>

  • Myrtle Avenue subway station

    Myrtle Avenue subway station

    Myrtle Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11221

    This subway station at the end of Brooklyn's Myrtle Avenue has been abandoned for over 50 years but still stands. The former local stop on the BMT Fourth Avenue Line went out of commission due to track reconstruction in 1956, although the remaining structure continued to be a site for graffiti and street art. It's best known for Bill Brand's Masstransiscope (1980). a working zoetrope art installment. It can still be seen out of the Manhattan-bound B and Q train windows when passing through the adjacent DeKalb Avenue station. More >>
