East Village

11th Street Community Garden

We have encountered a number of gardens on our travels between 1st Street and 11th, but this still, quiet plot nestled between two high-rises definitely stands out. The grounds are well-kept, featuring a communal fire pit, pines, a shaded porch, and beautiful flowers during the spring and summer months, all set behind a welcoming, wooden trellis. Since it was rescued from being sold off by the Trust for Public Land in 1999 it has provided a placid space to rest away from the city.
