Conservatory Garden

More from the better late than never file....

Conservatory Garden is this totally hidden gem of a place located way up on the East Side of Central Park on 105th Street and 5th Avenue. You could probably live your whole life in New York City and never know about it.

My friend Shalini and I went there on the Saturday afternoon of Halloween and we were completely surprised to find an amazingly abundant array of flowers that were filling the crisp autumn air with their strong fragrance. Never would have expected this sort of floral treat the day before the beginning of November. Conservatory Garden is pretty great all year round.
