Tens of Thousands of Tulips

I went to the Conservatory Garden in Central Park today...

It looks like a fairyland.

I actually believe it is one.

It is probably the best known secret spot in New York City.

I sat on a quiet bench, book in hand...

...smelling the sweet scent, listening to the birds chirp.
The Ultimate Relaxation.

Just take a walk through its romantic gardens,

so precisely trimmed,

and cared for to the tiniest detail.

Six acres of flowers...

each one more beautiful than the next.

Stroll through the exquisite allées...

of spring-blooming pink and white crabapple trees.

Turn a corner and there you see,

tens of thousands of tulips,

and even more tulips.

When you walk past the Vanderbilt Gate...

...you enter into a whole new world.

Check out The Conservatory Garden for location and hours.


  1. GORGEOUS!! So glad the flowers have bloomed for Chag HaAviv! So glad you are able to enjoy them! Can we make a date to go see them together? ;-)

    1. I don't know how much longer the garden will be in bloom :-(. But definitely - it's stunning all year round!

  2. You should mention that many couples about to get married will go to these gardens to have their wedding photos taken. So smart -- don't have to pay for flowers!

  3. i love your blog.

    ive always hated nyc, and now im learning to see it through fresh eyes.

    keep it up!
