In autumn, The New York Botanical Garden provides an incredible display of fall foliage in the heart of New York City. Now visitors can easily time their visits to the Botanical Garden to see the changing leaves at their peak, thanks to the live NYBG Fall Color Cam.

Each day brings a changing palette of autumn’s colors at the 250-acre Garden, which is located just 20 minutes from Midtown Manhattan. The NYBG Fall Color Cam is a window onto that cornucopia of crimson, gold, and orange leaves, an ideal tool for avid leaf peepers planning a visit to see the fall colors at their peak. The livestreaming view is a great resource for those who want to take their foliage viewing one step further by booking NYBG’s new Gram the Garden Tour. This private 90-minute tour of NYBG via golf cart takes visitors to NYBG-curated photo opportunities, which are some of the most Instagrammable places in the Garden.


When most of New York State’s leaf season is on the wane, the trees at NYBG are just coming into their prime. That is especially true in the 50-acre Thain Family Forest, New York City’s largest remaining tract of old-growth forest, and the Native Plant Garden, a 3.5-acre garden that showcases the beauty of plants native to northeastern North America.

NYBG celebrates foliage season with two event-packed Fall Forest Weekends that welcome tourists and city residents alike to experience the colors. There are guided walks through the Thain Family Forest, and visitors can take a scenic canoe trip down the Bronx River and spot wildlife that call this woodland home. Birds of prey demonstrations, Shakespeare performances, and many other activities make for an unforgettable autumn experience.

Fall Forest Weekends will be held on November 3 & 4 and 10 & 11, 2018, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Tickets for Fall Forest Weekends are in included in the All-Garden Pass. Visit NYBG’s website for more info on Fall Forest Weekends.
