Queens Botanical Garden closing for 2 weeks
The Botanical Garden in Queens is closing its gates for two weeks starting Monday in hopes of saving some money.
The garden is one of the city' nature heavens, but has also been feeling the strife of the budget crisis.
The executive director said the temporary closing will save $55,000.
Beginning in April, the garden will also close an hour early on weekends.
More than half of the garden's funding comes from the city and state.
