Park of the day

  • Abingdon Square — A pleasant piece of green in between some classic low-rise West Village apartment buildings. The park comes to life in late April when 10,000 tulip bulbs bloom and create a spectacular display. Stop by during Halloween to see the yearly Pumpkin Patch, a large display of jack-o-lanterns carved by local residents. In November, there is a tree lighting with food and caroling. Abingdon Square may not be as famous as some larger parks, but it ranks as one of the oldest parks in the entire city!

  • If you're interested in starting a garden in your community, attend the Find your Green Thumb: Starting a Community Garden presentation on Tuesday, January 22. You'll learn from community gardeners how to develop an empty lot in your neighborhood into a green garden and how to follow the GreenThumb community garden rules and regulations. The presentation starts Tuesday at 6pm at GrowNYC's Project Farmhouse at 76 East 13th Street in Manhattan. Contact 212 602 5300 for more info.
