According to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is lookin' pretty good right about now. They write: "Right now the Native Flora Garden is at the apex of its autumnal display. The maples are just starting to turn in the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden, and at the start of Cherry Walk, the air is perfumed with the delicious caramel scent of Cercidiphyllum japonicum, or katsura tree. Even the Garden’s deciduous bonsai are showing their colors—in miniature." Get there before we settle into a winter of bare branches... and if you spot any colorful leaves in any of the five boroughs, send us your photos or tag them "Gothamist" on Flickr!
