    A beautiful stroll.

    I felt calmer than ever watching this.

    Thanks for this. I was disappointed to see how inaccurate the representation of the garden is because it is evident that the video’s colors are over saturated and thus quite unrealistic.

    Beautiful, lush views of the blossoms. I had no idea there were so many. Please consider another video, taken from the Overlook. That would show the cherry blossoms and the Rose Garden. Wonderful camera work!

    So magical to be with the cherries. I visit them every year. Thank you for making it possible to see them this year as well.

    I woke up this morning to take an incredible stroll through the cherry blossom esplanade ... my heart has been lifted from the burdens that never cease ... thank you.

    Thank you many times over for giving us the cherry blossoms! They were especially glorious this season, and we were able to feel the joy of being among them in this beautiful video. The camera followed the paths, up and down, exactly as I would have walked had I been there for the yearly visit I have not missed in years. It was thrilling to walk with you in this special way. Thank you!

    Thank you for this beautiful tour. My husband and I always looked forward to visiting the cherry blossoms each year. I love how the pretty pink blossoms look against the stunning blue sky. I also love the colorful tulips that bloom around the same time at the BBG. Thanks again for bringing this lovely slice of heaven into our homes.

    You have the best vids…so smooth and clear…great color, very enjoyable.

    This is absolutely stunning! I am so sad I can’t be there for the cherry blossoms this year, it is one my fave ways to kick off spring with friends. Thank you for this. See you soon!!

    Thank you for this video.  I always enjoy the cherry blossoms at this time of year and am saddened that the gardens are closed. But now I look forward to next year to enjoy this spectacular sight.

  • Marilyn May 5, 2020

    That was astounding especially because it is very rare indeed to have the Gardens all to yourself. I have to mourn, however, the new construction that eliminated those benches and bushes along the walkway where one could sit and gaze out into the blossoms, etc. But thanks so much for reminding us of the beauty we would have missed otherwise!

    The videos of the Japanese Garden and Cherry Blossoms were Uplifting and Inspiring. Just what I needed as my spirit was getting a bit low. I will watch again and again… Thank You!

    A fabulous beautiful stroll.

  • Judy Stark May 5, 2020

    I’d love to hear from the cinematographer how he created this video. Drone camera?

  • Judy May 5, 2020

    My husband and I visited the BBG last year to see the cherry blossoms ... so majestic!!!

  • Marie May 5, 2020

    A thousand thank you’s for posting this video. As a Brooklyn native,  BBG has always been my backyard. How I miss seeing the cherry blossoms this year! Stay safe and well!

  • Rosa Zahora May 4, 2020

    Amazing. This video is a fresh wind in my heart. A beautiful memory I shall never forget.

  • Michele J. May 4, 2020

    Thank you for posting this! I’m very sad about missing the cherry blossoms this year so this made me incredibly happy!
