Last week Saturday was warm and sunny so we headed out to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. It's about 30 min subway ride from midtown Manhattan and a great place to escape if you're looking for some peace and quiet. You can't hear any traffic or car honking here. Beautiful and serene.
There were very few cherry trees in bloom anymore, most of them were past their peak. I can imagine how gorgeous it was here few weeks ago with the trees in full bloom. Next year I MUST witness that.
Since we didn't bring any food with us we were starving by the time we left the gardens. I ordered the biggest thing on the menu at Pop Burger; Vegetarian Chili.
