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.



GrowNYC’s New York State Regional Food Hub (The Hub) is entering the final stages of development and is expected to open in the Fall of 2024.
