Cherry Blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Christina Parrella

Partake in hanami, or cherry-blossom viewing, at Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The garden is taken over each April by pink blossoms from more than 200 trees. This springtime celebration comes from a centuries-old Japanese custom of viewing the flowers to reflect on life's beauty and transience. The festival hits peak bloom with Sakura Matsuri, on April 28 and 29.
