I haven't yet gotten to visit the Brooklyn Botanic Garden (and we're members!) in recent weeks, but Green-Wood Cemetery, which is within walking distance for me and where I just led a tour yesterday, offers some glorious spring flora, including azaleas, tulips, dogwoods, cherry blossoms (not shown--too late), and even a weeping beech tunnel.
So the flora are a bonus, on top of the cemetery's fascinating history, rolling hills, impressive statuary, great views, and feeling of repose--achieved within a not-long walk from the busy city.
