See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

The New York Botanical Garden, located in the Bronx, is one of the most beloved botanical gardens in the country. This summer, it becomes an even bigger must-see with the opening of an exhibit created by world-renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly.

Chihuly Nights combines Chihuly’s glass sculpture with light to turn the gardens into a magical space. Visitors can see the transformation from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. on Saturday nights, with Thursday evenings available in July and August. On Fridays July 14 and August 17, visit for Jazz & Chihuly with jazz bands. Kids can also explore the gardens during the day, spotting the sculptures amid the flowers between 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
