• Mildred T. Rhodebeck Garden (Garden of Eden)

    This former junkyard was restored by NYRP in 2006 thanks to the Rhodebeck Charitable Trust whose generous support provided for a complete renovation of the garden designed by veteran GreenThumb designer Edie Kean. 

    This large, lovely garden sits on a corner bordering the Bruckner Expressway in a changing neighborhood that is at once commercial, industrial, and residential. A welcome oasis of green in a neighborhood without easy access to public parks, Rhodebeck Garden is well-used by students from neighboring P.S. 75. 

    In addition to the cultivation of fresh produce, including tomatoes, peppers, corn and collard greens, the garden provides a welcoming space to hold community gatherings.
