FREE: Use Macy’s For Their Flowers

As exciting as winter’s barren trees and dead grasses are, I’m ready for the pretty colors of spring. You can get your pretty flower fix with the daffodils and croucouses blooming around the city or you can go for sensory overload. For the later, go to Macy’s Annual Flower Show.

Their ground floor is covered in orchids, ferns, tulips, roses, whales sculpted out of peonies, dog-shaped hedges, bees made out of pinecones, mossy butterflies, morning glories, etc. in so many colors that it’d blow Rainbow Brite’s mind. The only downside is navigating through the perfume counters and crowds, but it’s the best collection of flowers you’ll see without trekking to Botanical Garden in the Bronx.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
