Named after a city on the northern coast of Puerto Rico, this beloved garden is enthusiastically supported by local residents and is used by community members as a gathering place during New York City’s annual Puerto Rican Day Parade in June, which begins on 44th Street and marches to 125th Street.
Traditionally, there is a Puerto Rican Day Festival held each Saturday before the parade—New York City’s third largest—along 3rd Avenue in East Harlem, with community members transforming the El Cataño Community Garden into a celebration of Puerto Rican food and music.
