New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx
Did we know it was going to pour, and i mean pour rain... twice. once in the Bronx we got completely drenched and stopped at a farmer's market to get dry before our hike to the subway.. but 7 dollars bought dinner, so that was worth it.. then at 125th street we are feeling dry and warmer but the storm followed us.. Twice drenched..
The botanical garden was great, but it was about 85 degrees with 89 percent humidity and the woman at the toll booth neglected to tell us we needed tickets for everything..we hiked back down the hill, after we found out that the kids gardens and tram need tickets as does the conservatory..up to the window and a charge of 59 dollars for 3! are you kidding.. ?so we walked everywhere and didn't seem some of the gardens..oh well, live and learn...
