The word "close" is a traditional Scottish word that describes a landscape so inspirational that heaven seems closer to Earth in that place.

In 2004 when landscape photographer and journalist Allan Pollok-Morris learned that Little Sparta, a garden designed by Ian Hamilton Finlay, had been named the most important work of art in Scotland, he was inspired to travel throughout his home country in search of new works in landscape design and land art.

This exhibition documents Pollok-Morris's journey and celebrates the creations of many notable contemporary designers and artists working in the Scottish landscape. Through his documentary-style photographs, Pollok-Morris aims to capture "everyday" images of these landscapes from the point of view of those who envisioned and created them. The exhibition uses examples from all corners of the country to celebrate the important role of gardens and land art in international arts and culture.

Please note: this event has been cancelled due to the forecast heavy precipitation..

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Saturdays, Tuesday and Thursday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Rain and weather / air advisory cancels. Fitness programs are cancelled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. After years of being a gym rat, I've seen the light, so to speak. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

<![CDATA[Close: A Journey in Scotland at The New York Botanical Garden]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/02/13/close-a-journey-in-scotland-at-the-new-york-botanical-garden http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/02/13/close-a-journey-in-scotland-at-the-new-york-botanical-garden Date: February 13, 2014

The word "close" is a traditional Scottish word that describes a landscape so inspirational that heaven seems closer to Earth in that place.

In 2004 when landscape photographer and journalist Allan Pollok-Morris learned that Little Sparta, a garden designed by Ian Hamilton Finlay, had been named the most important work of art in Scotland, he was inspired to travel throughout his home country in search of new works in landscape design and land art.

This exhibition documents Pollok-Morris's journey and celebrates the creations of many notable contemporary designers and artists working in the Scottish landscape. Through his documentary-style photographs, Pollok-Morris aims to capture "everyday" images of these landscapes from the point of view of those who envisioned and created them. The exhibition uses examples from all corners of the country to celebrate the important role of gardens and land art in international arts and culture.

The relaxation technique, somewhat like yoga, makes you feel as though you are floating on water.

You may experience yourself drifting in and out of sleep during the gentle and quiet sessions. You will gain a deeper sense of well-being and relaxation, with a better understanding of your body and how it feels. If you suffer migraines or back or neck pain, the instructor will advice you on the specific technique to alleviate the area of concern.

Mats and materials are provided. Come in loose and comfortable pants and clothing. Most people remove their shoes.

Get ready to have an amazing experience. This is a very popular class.
