THE BRONX -

After a long wait, the corpse flower has finally bloomed at the New York Botanical Garden.

The flower bloomed yesterday. It only stays open for about a day and a half.

The flower is said to smell like rotting flesh.

There is a video livestream of the corpse flower in full bloom for those who can't make it to the Botanical Garden today.
