487 Hudson Street
Feeling overwhelmed by the fast paced city and need a break? Behind a thick brick wall next to the Church of St. Likes in the Field is a ‘secret garden’, the perfect place away from the urban jungle to destress. Enjoy a book while sipping on a cup of coffee while resting on one of the many benches available in the garden.
While the garden might sit on a 2 acre piece of land belonging to the church, it does welcome people from the public to enjoy their incredibly well maintained garden. Home to a 100 species of birds and two dozen types of butterflies and moths, this privately managed garden accepts donations from the public in order to continue the upkeep of the garden.
The garden was first started during a planting from England’s famous Glastonbury tree in 1842, and has since expanded to the 6 part garden that it is today. What are you waiting for? Head to the garden and let the noise of the city fade away as you absorb the calm sounds of the rustling trees and chirping birds!
