St. Luke’s in the Fields Garden

Right next to the Church of St. Luke’s in the Fields is the Garden of St. Luke’s in the Fields.  Those are long names, I tell ya.

It’s located on Greenwich Street in Greenwich Village.  (This is getting to be a double/repetitious post.)

It’s a walled garden, but only the front and back of it appears to be brick.  The rest is fencework, including my least favorite type:  chain link on the southern part.

I really like this garden.  It’s wonderful.  And pretty popular.  I was there on a Saturday and it was relatively crowded.  The weather wasn’t bad, so that helped bring in people.  But this is just a beautiful place in and of itself.

There’s a nice birdbath/fountain.

It’s small, but the seating is nicely spaced out.  In the center are some seats and then at the four corners.  The tree below is at the center.

And below is a picture of the southern side, looking eastward.

The only problem with the place?  Traffic noise.  It can be described in a lot of ways, but anyone who calls it a “haven” from the City noise isn’t quite putting the full truth into it.  But it is nonetheless a wonderful little place.

    Je vis en France et chaque année je fais un voyage a NYC et chaque année je passe faire une pause dans ce jardin. Je l’adore, c’est un de mes jardins preferes de NYC (avec Wave Hill).

    I live in France, and every year I make a trip to NYC, and every year I spend pause in the garden. I love it, it’s one of my favorite gardens NYC (with Wave Hill).
