Japanese Gardens in Brooklyn

With the stifling heat and humidity it was no surprise when the weather finally broke on the Wednesday delivering torrential rain and a mini-tornado to Brooklyn. The rains flooded most subway stations and lines leaving Andrea and I more or less stranded on the Brooklyn side - still if this tempest had not been visited upon the fair citizens of Brooklyn then we would have missed this hidden jewel! The Brooklyn Botanical Gardens are a modern wonder tucked away behind the Brooklyn museum. In the mid 1970s a Japanese themed garden was planted with Japanese elm and a stone garden and this amazing rock pool.
