This delightful community garden is on the UPPER WEST SIDE of Manhttan. Established by volunteers……….and maintained daily by volunteers. I have donated 200 tulips and I love the Spring time when they bloom.
You can sit…..rest……read……bring the kids…….and have a picnic……..or just SMELL THE ROSES.
Movies in the evening and free concerts on the week-ends.
