HAPPY EASTER! What a wonderful weekend it was with gorgeous weather. Even though Easter weekend is coming to an end here are some things you can do this upcoming week.
When the spring breeze gently blows, cherry blossom petals flutter and makes a magical scenery that makes you wonder if it’s lightly snowing on a spring day. One of the beauties of spring is definitely the amazing site cherry blossom trees create. Brooklyn Botanic Garden is the place to go to enjoy the spring breeze and walk through the shower of pink petals falling gently from the trees. Spring is here but will be gone soon, so don’t miss this year’s cherry blossom beauty.
WHERE: Brooklyn Botanic Garden (1000 Washington Ave.)
WHEN: Open until April 29 but sooner the better before the petals all fall off!
Kraftwerk meets MoMA. Over 8 days, the band will hold a live performance and 3-D visualization of one of their studio albums. The performances are sold out, but you can still get some of Kraftwerk at MoMA’s exhibition and see their visual and audio work.
