New York Botanical Garden

The New York Botanical Garden one of the premier botanical gardens in the United States, located in the Bronx in New York City. It offers major exhibitions and flower shows throughout the year, drawing over 800,000 visitors annually.

Garden was founded in 1891 on part of the grounds of the Belmont Estate, formerly owned by the tobacco magnate Pierre Lorillard before coming under Fordham's possession, after a fund-raising campaign led by Columbia University botanist Nathaniel Lord Britton, who was inspired to emulate the Royal Botanic Gardens in London.
