Cheap nature is not why people compromise their quality of life and move to New York, and yet, if you know where to look, it abounds (to some degree). The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a zen haven of life that lacks any hustle but producing oxygen and offers a brief break from the rat race.
Usually, Garden admission is $15 for adults, but the Botanic has waved the entrance fee through the winter, offering free admission to all Tuesdays through Fridays (the Garden is closed Mondays). Saturdays and Sundays, entrance will cost you.
While the weather remains decent, at the moment, it’s always a good idea to fill up on nature vibes when you can – you never know when the temperature will drop below zero again and you’ll need to call on that dwindling supply of fresh air memories to fight the SAD away.
The Brooklyn Botanic Garden has entrances at 150 Eastern Parkway, 455 Flatbush Ave. and 990 Washington Ave.

They waived, not waved, the fee.
There are green and growing things there inside the Steinhardt Arboretum: temperate, tropical and desert biomes, plus bonsai and orchid exhibits.
