Hope Community's Modesto "Tin" Flores Garden

Hope Community's Modesto "Tin" Flores Garden
Lexington Ave btwn E. 104 & 105th Street
East Harlem, Manhattan
Founded in 1981

This is a special ornamental garden in East Harlem, a collaboration of Hope Community, an East Harlem non-profit, and GrowNYC. You enter the front area and a small footbridge greets you on the right. It traverses a concrete stream that once carried water from a textured mural depicting a jungle waterfall. A narrow brick pathway leads the visitor to different sitting areas. Mature birch trees provide dappled shade.
