As promised, a few pictures from a recent quiet visit to Liz Christy Communiy Garden. The garden, which runs the length of a block, currently has two distinct sides...
The western side is grown in and you can literally get lost inside of it. The east side is, as of two weeks ago, almost a blank slate, with raw soil, trees waiting to be planted, and granite bricks to mark the area. But it is a gorgeous blank slate (see slideshow) and an exciting scene to imagine what might be in store for the coming seasons.
E. Houston St. running along the garden.
This dense portion of the garden insulates visitors and easily makes one forget the traffic of E. Houston Street. There was even one point when both I and a woman reading a newspaper startled each other as I came winding around a path with my camera. She appeared out of nowhere, on a cozy bench, in a secluded nook that was perfect for reading the day's newspaper.
Open to all.
