Episode 2.4: Brooklyn Botanic Garden

We’re mixing it up! This time, Deb’s calling the shots as we go visit the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s administration building, a beautiful Tuscan Revival structure designed by the legendary McKim, Mead, and White firm. Join us as we enthuse about Brooklyn over Times Square, wax excitedly about greenhouses, and ponder the different scenarios that might lead to installing iron rails and grilles over windows.

The admin building is behind the conservatory.
