A ten minute walk east from the 4 train’s Bedford Park stop is the Bronx Botanical Garden. I would recommend a visit to this well manicured park anytime of the year but especially during the holiday season. Starting in mid-November, the Botanical Garden showcases its extraordinary collection of […]
