New York City Tourism

The New York Botanical Garden
Whatever you are looking for in a big city vacation, you will find it in New York. The city has a rich history, from the arrival of early Dutch settlers and the swearing in the George Washington as the first U.S. President to the influx of millions of immigrants in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Today’s New York city is known around the world for its distinctive skyline – even post – September 11. 2001 – its first rate museums and performing arts companies, and its status as the capital of finance, fashion, art, publishing, broadcasting, theater and advertising. And of course, New Yorkers themselves are world famous – if not always or their charm, at least for their panache, ethnic diversity and street smarts.

New York has 150 state parks. The Empire State Passport, permitting unlimited entrance to the parks for a year (April-March), is available at most parks; you can also contact the State Office of Parks and Recreation or write for an application.

The New York Botanical Garden, a 250 acre botanical treasury around the dramatic gorge of the Bronx River is within Bronx Park. Its 40 acre forest, conservatory, museum and outdoor gardens draw nature enthusiasts from around the world. This park is closed on Mondays.
