of the outrageous cost for mediocre food like $13.50 for a sandwich that had little to nothing inside, one slice each of salami, cheese, etc., a $4.50 bottle of iced tea or $4.25 for water. A genuine ripoff to the max! Bring your own food...More

The BG is next to the Bronx Zoo. Combine your trip and see both. The BG is an amazing cultural experience for adults. During the Christmas season the kids enjoy the wondrous Christmas display. Just beautiful.

The winter/holiday display of model NYC buildings, bridges and trains is spectacular. What a great way to spend a few hours. Both indoor and outdoor exhibits are interesting.

Been here many times and always leave wishing I had spent more time. Great place to just walk around, enjoy all kinds of plants and flowers. A real mecca for macro photography as well.

We went for the Train Show, where dozens of New York buildings are built out of plants, with model trains running among them. This is not just for kids!!!

I honestly can’t tell you how crowded it is on a Saturday/weekend. I usually go during the week, at those times it’s not crowded at all.
