The world-renowned botanic garden includes a number of specialty gardens, world-class plant collections, and the Steinhardt Conservatory, which houses the C.V. Starr Bonsai Museum, three climate-themed plant pavilions, a white cast-iron and glass aquatic house, and an art gallery. Founded in 1910, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden (BBG) holds more than 10,000 species of plants and each year welcomes more than 700,000 visitors from around the world.

Brooklyn Botanic Garden (BBG), is located at 1000 Washington Ave. in Prospect Heights, about 25 minutes from midtown Manhattan by subway.
