Botanical Shadows

Last weekend we had the pleasure of visiting the New York Botanical Gardens.
There we saw the original Yankee Stadium, majestic St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and some of New York’s most treasured Hudson River mansions and the bridges that take you from one side to another!
Be amazed as you gaze at these works of art....and take note because all recreations are made entirely from natural materials!

Wow that's an amazing display at the NY Botanical Gardens! The Botanic gardens I locally visit only have plants and flowers and stuff. Nothing quite so arty! Just another reason why I would love to visit New York. Thanks for sharing these beauties with us. I love them!

These attractions are wonderful, the City that seems unassailable is actually of nearly human scale. These are more natural attractions, not merely photos, but showing NYC as being organoc, not just man-made...
