This weekend was Sakura Matsuri, the annual Cherry Blossom Festival at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. I’ve had my tickets for this event for weeks, and have been counting down the days. I dragged my roommate, Kate, along with me out to Brooklyn for The Naturalized New Yorker’s first ever non-Manhattan post!
Getting to the gardens is easy – it’s accessible from the Subway, so we hopped on the express 4/5 train and were there in just over a half hour. After that, it’s less than a 10 minute walk to the BBG entrance on Washington Avenue (we didn’t actually use a map or any directions, just followed the giant crowd all walking in the same way).
