LaGuardia Corner Garden is an award-winning community garden in the heart of NYC’s Greenwich Village. It is a place of natural beauty, where the visitor can find an oasis of calm in urban surroundings. During the growing season visitors can enjoy a dazzling display of daffodils, tulips, irises, peonies, roses, and other perennials, as well as shrubs and fruit trees.
The garden was created in 1981 by volunteers on a strip of barren land. It is maintained and supported by volunteer members. LCG is registered with NYC’s GreenThumb and is a designated Backyard Wildlife Habitat and Monarch Way Station. The garden has trees, shrubs, and perennials that attract birds, butterflies, and bees.
In the spring members conduct programs for local school-children. Garden events include seasonal celebrations, events for children, and a variety of musical offerings.
LCG is proud to be among the LaGuardia Garden and the Time Landscape in forming the “ribbon of green,” a flow of green spaces along the east side of LaGuardia Place, from West 3d to Houston Street.
