DESCRIPTION

While many New Yorkers don’t even know of its existence, the Queens Botanical Garden‘s Visitor & Administration Building, designed by Manhattan-based BKSK Architects is one of the most accessible (not to mention absolutely lovely) examples of eco architecture right in the city’s back yard. And if you’ve never seen a solar roof in action, witnessed rainwater harvesting or walked upon a green roof, you can do all three right there (for free on Sundays and Wednesdays after 4PM, and just $4 during normal operating hours). And while you’re at it, stroll through some of the 27 other blooming paths, flowerbeds and oases, learn about herb gardening and composting or enjoy a picnic on one of the grassy knolls.
