Spanning 250 acres in the Bronx, the New York Botanical Garden has been an urban oasis for New Yorkers for 130 years, as well as an internationally renowned leader in plant research and conservation. The hundreds of color photographs collected here—up to 11 × 11 inches—are a worthy tribute to its spectacular plants and architecture, while the park's LuEsther T. Mertz Library contributes choice reproductions of rare botanical art. In the texts, NYBG President Emeritus Gregory Long and Todd Forrest discuss its history, its ongoing development, and its groundbreaking scientific discoveries.
