As the weather warms up the urge to get outside is irresistible. Quick excursions and day trips are the perfect antidote to spring fever. One of our favorite easy getaways is a trip to the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. Easily accessible by car or mass transit—Metro North even offers special packages from Grand Central—the Garden is an oasis within the so-called concrete jungle.
This season, the New York Botanical Garden is hosting CHIHULY, the first major New York show by the artist Dale Chihuly in 10 years. Twenty installations have been erected throughout the gardens, and the artist’s drawings and select early works are featured in the library. NYBG has created a schedule of events around the exhibition that will run through the fall. Here are four unique ways you can enjoy this incredible show.
