Win-win solution found for Elizabeth St. Garden
by Lincoln Anderson, May 28, 2015

“Community Board 2 has identified an alternative site for affordable housing project that could save the Elizabeth St. Garden. …

“Meanwhile, after finding out two years ago that the Elizabeth St. Garden, located between Prince and Spring Sts., was in fact city-owned land — albeit privately leased — community residents in open-space-starved Little Italy have embraced it wholeheartedly and have been waging an all-out struggle to save it and get it designated an official New York City park.”

Garden Hours (weather permitting)
Weekends: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Wednesdays: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Thursdays & Fridays: Noon – 6 p.m.
Volunteers keep the Garden open during the sunniest and warmest hours of the day, year round. Email to help.
