Comments about Smart Destinations Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanic Garden:
The Brooklyn Museum is one of my favorite museum. part of it is just by comparison to the scene over in Manhattan -- the Brooklyn Museum is much less crowded and feels a lot more relaxing. But on its own the Museum is rightly a destination -- its got an impresive array and variety of displays in a grand setting. Definitely a great place to visit and its fun to eat in the surrounding area.
