Cherry Blossoms at Brooklyn Botanic Gardens

With the arrival of the spring season, cherry blossoms crop up like mushrooms and fill the earth and the air of the magical Brooklyn Botanic Gardens! Enjoy this unique spectacle which lasts only from the end of March and until the end of April.

The cherry blossom is the national flower of Japan, and with all probability the most beloved flower among the Japanese. The blooming of cherry blossoms signifies the arrival of spring, the beginning of the new academic year for Japanese schools, bright future, as well as suggesting purity, transience and melancholy. Since time immemorial the Japanese are used to picnicking under the boughs of cherry trees or simply lying under one of them while witnessing their splendour. To find out more about the beginning of the cherry blossoms’ season in New York (which can vary according to the weather) click on the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens website. There are free admissions to the BBG on Saturday morning, which also apply during the Cherry Blossom Season!



Your stay in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (NYC)

Williamsburg is a neighbourhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn (the others are Manhattan, Queens, Bronx and Staten Island). Williamsburg is something like a new Soho (where artists – but not yet expensive internationally known boutiques – came).

A large number of artists started to move to this area in the 80’s. Until the first half of the 90’s Williamsburg remained a neighbourhood like any other, with a big Hebraic community as well as with smaller international community (Italian, German, Dominican, Portorican and so on). However, the rental boom in Manhattan brought about rapid demographical changes. Young people, as well as traditional dwellers of Manhattan, moved to Williamsburg in order to escape from the rising prices, as well as to discover the new culture of the place. Nowadays there are many art studios and galleries.
