This app serves as your personal guide to The New York Botanical Garden’s exhibition "Groundbreakers: Great American Gardens and the Women Who Designed Them." Learn more about the Abby Aldrich Rockefellar Garden in Maine and the rich history of collections at The New York Botanical Garden - all designed by some of the leading landscape architects of the early 20th century - and all designed by women. See stunningly beautiful images by leading female garden photographers of the period, and enjoy original video and audio content.

You can also take a step back in time through the app’s Augmented Reality feature called Viewfinder at designated hot spot locations. You will experience the era's rich history by viewing past and present simultaneously - with historical photographs, architectural plans, quotes from archival materials, and plants in the living collections overlaid on top of their present-day counterparts.
