But nothing is more remarkable than the blooming of the gentle white and pink of the cherry blossoms every springtime.

A walk in the park is an alluring way of getting to know the more pristine and bewitching aspects of what is most notably described as the concrete jungle. The New York Botanical Gardens host a number of cherry blossom trees: the curving path in the Cherry Collection, among the greenery of the Arthur and Janet Ross Conifer Arboretum, and out of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory.
And don’t despair, the Botanical Gardens online interactive map makes finding these blossoms really just walk in the park.
