Overview

The 6th & B Garden is a green oasis in the middle of East Village in New York City. Originally the place was a marsh created by the East river, which was refilled in 1845. Buildings replaced the empty lot, gradually it filled with immigrants until they too abandoned the place by the 1980s. The rubble and dilapidated structures were removed to make place for open space and the plan was made for a garden in 1983. The garden came into being with energetic community support and hands on work by them. The garden is also an event center for the community, where programs and workshops are held. an ideal retreat on lazy weekends.
