Yesterday, I had a chance to have a sneak peek at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's new visitor center, which is slated to open to the public on May 16, 2012. The new visitor center, designed by Weiss/Manfredi, was built to create a more formal entry from the street into the garden, creating a place to welcome and orient tour groups, a larger gift store with room for plant sales throughout the year, and an event space.
