Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s greenhouse complex was built in the 1980s to cultivate and display plants from environments around the world. Specifically selected for its access to sunlight, this is one of the only places in New York City where you can see such a diverse collection of rare plants in bloom year-round. Now it’s under threat.

Come learn about the history of these buildings, the rare plants that thrive here, and why allowing the construction of massive towers would be catastrophic.
