Madison Street Community Garden

HOURS

All NYRP community gardens hold a minimum of 20 open hours per week. Please check the bulletin board at the garden for times and details.

In 1985, this small-but-active garden was established by neighborhood residents, who decided to utilize the space to grow seasonal vegetables, including tomatoes, peppers, basil and parsley. In 2004, New York Restoration Project (NYRP) installed an iron picket fence to ensure the garden was protected, built a sidewalk and began actively recruiting neighbors and community institutions to help plant and enjoy this green space. 

Then, in 2008, NYRP built picnic tables and benches and partnered with local gardeners to install raised planting beds. Additional garden features include a winding woodchip path bordered by flowers and perennials, such as a raspberry bush, several mature rose bushes and a beautiful Magnolia tree.
