Green Retreats

by Stephen Anderton

The garden: New York Botanical Garden

A tree grows in: da Bronx

First planted: 1891

Roots: The proximity to noisy, bustling Manhattan is what makes the leafiness and open spaces of New York Botanical Garden so amazing. One minute you're in Grand Central Station and then a short train ride away you're walking up an avenue of towering tulip trees or shading your eyes from the glare from crisp white glasshouses. Most surprising of all is the view down to the Bronx River, rolling through what seems like an untamed wild woodland. It's an exciting blend of high-jinks horticulture and simple wilderness—an unexpected breath of fresh air just outside the wonderful madhouse that is the greatest city on earth.
