The Creative Little Garden. Alphabet City. East Village, New York City.
The community gardens of the East Village and Lower East Side are some of my favorite little spots in Manhattan. This particular garden is called The Creative Little Garden and it is located in Alphabet City in the East Village.
The Creative Little Garden started out as a tenement building in the early part of the 20th century. Many buildings that occupied the same block became abandoned in the 1950s and 1960s and in the early 1970s, the building that occupied the site where this lovely garden sits today was demolished. In 1982, the Creative Little Garden was created and it has been serving the community ever since.
