Famous as the home of Yankee Stadium, elevated trains, and dense apartment blocks, the Bronx is also the greenest of New York City's boroughs. Visit the gorillas at the famous Bronx Zoo or wander through the 50-acre forest at the New York Botanical Garden. Pick up some gourmet foods on Arthur Avenue, the Bronx's Little Italy, and have a picnic at Van Cortlandt Park, which features two square miles of boating, horseback riding, tennis, and the oldest public golf course in the United States.

Located in the Bronx, just 20 minutes from Midtown Manhattan via Metro North Railroad, the 250-acre New York Botanical Garden is a showplace of nature in every season of the year and a must-see destination for NYC visitors. Discover 50 breathtaking gardens, indoor rain forests and deserts, 50 acres of native forest, a river, waterfalls, and rolling green hills. Major seasonal exhibitions and events complement the existing beauty of the permanent gardens, and highlights include the Holiday Train Show (November - January) and The Orchid Show (March - April). NYBG is the perfect excursion for visitors looking to experience the natural beauty of New York City.
The annual Orchid Show is one of the highlights of the year. While wonderful in the day -on Friday and Saturday nights, the NYBG sells ticket for 6:30, 7:30or 8:30 entrance. Go for the 6:30 entrance as you will get to see the gorgeous flowers in day light as well as artfully lit in the evening. Plus music is piped in and there are three bar stations. What a fun and beautiful evening experience.

This is one of my favorite parks in New York.
Astoria Park offers activities for everyone. It has basketball courts, tennis courts, running tracks, playgrounds and even an outdoor swimming pool for the summer.
It’s great for children, dogs and adults. Definitely a must see in Astoria!

At New York City's most visited museum and attraction, you will experience over 5,000 years of art from around the world. The Met is for anyone as a source of inspiration, insight and understanding. You can learn, escape, play, dream, discover, connect.
I’m not a huge fan of art galleries but I can imagine if this is your thing you will love it. Lots of great displays, sculptures, portraits, landscapes and modern art. Maps available to help navigate this museum with ease. Spent an hour here but you could spend much much longer. Audio guides are available.

Occupying more than 400 acres in the Bronx, this cemetery is known for the ornate and imaginative mausoleums and monuments of some of the country's most famous industrialists and politicians. Notable individuals include Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Celia Cruz, Irving Berlin, Herman Melville, and many more. Guide maps are available at both cemetery entrances.
Go in through the Jerome Avenue gate. That is where you should start your tour. All the large mausoleums are there. So many famous people are buried here. Download a map or pick one up at the 233rd St gate. Tours are given and in the fall they have night time tours. it really is a beautiful peaceful setting

For more than 150 years, visitors have flocked to Central Park's 843 green acres in the heart of Manhattan. Since 1980, the Park has been managed by the Central Park Conservancy, in partnership with the public. Central Park is open 6 am to 1 am daily. Visit the official website of Central Park to learn more about Park happenings and activities and to learn how you to help Central Park!
The park is big, with beautiful walkways, scenic views of the city, and lots if green space. There are also lots of things to do, like the zoo, ponds, and wildlife watching (mostly birds). We got food at the little place by the sailboat pond, and it was mediocre. All in all a good park, but I think I need to revisit when the weather is warmer to get the full experience.

A non-profit cultural institution that is located on 26 acres in the Bronx, whose mission is to explore the interaction between people and their natural environment through the maintenance of gardens, greenhouses and environmental protection programs for residents and visitors.
mostly locals in Riverdale know this beautiful location with view of the Palisades and lovely gardens. The mansion is lovely, used as a venue space. There are tranquil paths, well kept lawns, and a very peaceful atmosphere. Limited parking is available and it is a bit of a walk from the nearest bus stop. There are no nearby subway stops although MetroNorth Riverdale station is a formidable up hill walk away

This famous ballpark opened in 1923, and the home of the New York Yankees.
Maybe the best known franchise in the US if not the world. Coming to Yankee Stadium is an experience you won't forget. Soak in the history as you walk through the stadium and see the many bars and food stalls synonymous with NYC. Don't forget the monument to all the legends of the Yankees and there are some huge names, Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio to name a few. Make a point to get to go a game if you can.

The largest urban zoo in the U.S., with over 6,000 animals within its 265 acres of parks, woods and streams.
What a beautiful way to spend several hours, walking around a zoo that didn't feel like a typical zoo. The enclosures were natural, the grounds were well-kept, and the animals were a sight in every way possible.

Top of the Rock Observation Deck, the newly opened, 3-tiered observation deck on the 67th, 69th and 70th floors of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, is New York City's most amazing attraction! The unforgettable experience includes a panoramic 360-degree, unobstructed view from the 70th floor observatory, 850 feet in the sky! Hours of Operation: 8:00 AM - Midnight, last elevator goes up at 11:00 PM.Main entrance is located on 50th Street between 5th & 6th Avenues.
We were so worried of visibility during this late winter spell, especially considering the hefty entrance fee.
Fortunately it was clear enough to have adequate vistas of iconic Manhattan and especially the amazing Empire State Building. Chrysler building views were partially obscured though.
Did not have to wait too long, I think less than 30 minutes to the top. Best views from 3rd floor of viewing deck.
A bit disorganized with the purchasing of the photos but I think worth the package price for the memories.
