  • Bowling Green

    Broadway and Whitehall St New York, NY 10004 Bowling Green is New York City’s oldest park. According to tradition, this spot served as the council ground for Native American tribes and was the site of the legendary sale of Manhattan to Peter Minuit in 1626. The Dutch called the area "the Plain" and used it for several purposes. It was the beginning of Heere Staat (High Street, now Broadway)—a trade route which extended north through Manhattan and the Bronx. It was also the site of a parade ground, meeting place, and cattle market. In 1686 the site became public property, when the City Charter put all "waste, vacant, unpatented and unappropriated lands" under municipal domain. More >>

  • 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 >>

  • Bryant Park

    Bryant Park

    42nd & 6th Ave. New York, NY 10016
    212-983-4142 Now a prissy picnic spot, that football-field sized lawn between Fifth and Sixth, south of 42nd used to be a Midtown dealers paradise. Now, bright-light pop artists such as Hillary Duff perform here, garden tours promenade through the grounds and worker-bees in their khakis perch on blankets on the fescue for midday getaways. What a difference a decade (or three) makes. Bryant Park is still home to an abundance of free events, from weekly film screenings in the summertime to indoor reading series in the winter. More >>

  • Bryant Park Reading Room

    5 6th Ave. New York, NY 10013

Bit of NYC-propagated history: The room opened in 1935 as a public response to the job losses of the depression era. It re-opened last summer, and, keeping with tradition, itas open to everyone, job or not, ID or not. More >>
