This lovely garden shaded by mature trees is the former site of a synagogue. In 2004, GrowNYC worked with gardeners to widen and level pathways to accommodate wheelchairs. The garden got a new tool shed, wood fencing, birdhouse, and flagstone entry. This work was supported by the Evan Frankel Foundation. The garden also received extensive plantings donated by Chelsea Garden Center. The results are winding stone-dust paths and numerous seating opportunities. The garden displays lace-cap hydrangeas, antique roses, Rose of Sharon, daylilies, etc. Transferred to the Manhattan Land Trust by TPL, which provided the garden with a permanent water supply.
