Time to Get Your Sakura Matsuri On, If You Dare

Cherry Blossom Map

Not that it needs any introduction or promotion, given the huge crowds that show up every year, but the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's Cherry Blossom Festival takes place today and tomorrow from 10AM-6PM. There are usually long lines to get in (and this year the BBG is actually doing advance ticket sales) but one does get to enjoy the spectacle of hundreds of people with cameras crowding around trees for shots of those ephemeral and beautiful blossoms. On the other hand, by the look of the map, which shows the most current conditions, the blossoms should be around on Monday and Tuesday too. We'd highly recommend a visit, then, if you can manage it, which most people can't, which is why we'll probably bump lenses over the weekend.

Good advice, except BBG is closed on Mondays.
