See the Cherry Blossoms

It’s Cherry Blossom season and it’s super fleeting lasting just a couple of weeks. Go out of town or bury yourself in a project and Bam! the curtain has gone down.
So please, please, please get thyself to a park and find ye some cherry blossoms to admire.
In NYC, we are fortunate enough to have the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. (It’s a shame but I grew up in Brooklyn and have never been during cherry blossom season. Confession over. It’s #20 on My 40 Before 40 List.)
The cherry blossoms are such a big deal at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens that they have a Cherry Blossom Status watch to let you know how the blooms are progressing.
Luckily, several other cities are flush with Cherry Blossom trees and celebrations.
- Washington D.C.
- Macon, Georgia
- Los Angeles (Balboa Boulevard in Van Nuys)
- Philadelphia (Fairmount Park)
- Newark (Belleville & Bloomfield), New Jersey
- Seattle (located in the Quad at the University of Washington)
If we’ve missed any, please let us know! If you visit, please send us pictures.
