Time Out says ...
New Yorkers are singularly focused on leaves this time of year, but in Japan, fall is chrysanthemum-appreciation season. Gawk at multicolored blossoms trained to grow into a bridge, cascade or wall formation at this three-week display, and single stems that have been manipulated to produce hundreds of flowers at once. The closing weekend features a special bonsai exhibit (Oct 26, 27) and poetry reading with Jane Hirschfield (Oct 27 at 2pm); throughout the month you can also catch traditional Japanese taiko drumming (Sat, Sun 1, 3pm) and sip sake at a pop-up restaurant (Fri–Sun).

$20–$25, seniors and students $18–$22, children 2–12 $8–$10, children under 2 free. Grounds only $13, seniors $6, students $5, children 2–12 $3, children under 2 free; Wed 10am–6pm, Sat 9–10am free.

A full program and tickets are available on the New York Botanical Garden website .
