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.

We are thrilled to announce construction is moving along and we are so close to opening the doors to our new public home, Project Farmhouse.
