Situated alongside Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Museum of Art (neither of which should be missed), these gardens are a beautiful, bucolic destination for any New York City traveler.  Popular as a spring destination when crocuses are blooming and trees are budding, the 52 acres of perfectly manicured and curated fauna offer attractions throughout the year.  Highlights include its world-famous three-acre Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden (built in 1915 and the first fully-realized Japanese garden built on American soil), the Cranford Rose Garden, and the Steinhardt Conservatory.  A spring visit during cherry blossom season is particularly pleasing after a New York winter.  Closed Mondays.
