Jefferson Market Garden is a peaceful oasis in the hustle and bustle of New York city. A well-manicured lawn in the centre is surrounded by trees, bushes, annuals and perennials. When they are in bloom it is spectacular. There are benches in the garden for...More

Right in the middle of one of the busiest neighborhoods is this wonderful, beautifully landscaped garden. It isn't very large, but has been designed to delight all four senses. There are benches, perhaps not enough. Hours of operation are a bit odd. When I've passed...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,

won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
