The Jefferson Market Garden is a little garden, located in front of the Jefferson Market Library, a must-see building (see that review), at 10th Street & Greenwich Avenue. Unfortunately it doesn't even stick to the limited posted opening hours, so peeping through the fence, a...More

BEWARE erratic closing times. I'm a photographer, and on two successive Sundays I wanted to capture the 'magic hour' light in the garden, typically 6-7 pm. Tho the posted sign states that the garden is open until dusk, on both occasions the staff left at...More

Jefferson Market Garden is a small, lovely, quiet oasis in the heart of Greenwich Village. One can see it in a few minutes or sit a spell and enjoy the beauty.

We spend lots of time in Greenwich Village. So much to do there. Jefferson Market Garden is a special treat. It's beautifully maintained - lovely plantings all during the growing season. Obviously a local group of volunteers, some of whom sit at the front gate...More

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

Nice quaint green space conveniently along route from Wall Street back towards city center. Lovingly up-kept flower beds and manicured lawns make this a very relaxing place.

The original Jefferson Market was leveled in 1873 to make way for the Courthouse designed by Calvert Vaux, one of Central Park’s master planners, and Frederick Clarke Withers. In 1885, a panel of architects voted it the fifth most beautiful building in America. In 1931,...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,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
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
