As evident by the popularity of outdoor spaces like Central Park and the ultra-trendy High Line, New York City has a wide variety of green spaces. However, on summer weekends and in the midst of tourist season, these overpopulated spaces may not offer the ideal respite from the city that many people are craving. Luckily, New York is home to numerous community gardens, especially in the East Village, that are open to the public. Many of these gardens serve as artifacts of New York history and offer secluded space for community gatherings, art events, and relaxation.
