Like we said before, the gardens are closed to the public, but for a few years running, they were opened for the Open House New York weekend, during which many of these pictures (like this one) were taken. Unfortunately, they have not been a part of OHNY for the last couple years, and it doesn't look like they will be this year either.

    Thanks for sharing this true hidden garden. Analyzing its impact or why I even liked it, I think it's a combination of two things: (a) while it's a bit formal and perhaps even slightly outdated in its basic look, it's a beautifully maintained specimen of this particular kind of garden, and (b) the stark contrast, between the building tops and the intense greenery and slightly organic shape that all plantings take on, is very pleasing to the eye. Thanks for putting this together for us.
