New Yorkers are singularly focused on leaves this time of year, but in Japan, fall is chrysanthemum-appreciation season. Gawk at multicolored blossoms trained to grow into a bridge, cascade or wall formation at this three-week display, and single stems that have been manipulated to produce hundreds of flowers at once. The closing weekend features a special bonsai exhibit (Oct 26, 27) and poetry reading with Jane Hirschfield (Oct 27 at 2pm); throughout the month you can also catch traditional Japanese taiko drumming (Sat, Sun at 1, 3pm) and moms and dads can sip sake at a pop-up restaurant (Fri–Sun).
