Are you and the kids looking for a quiet respite from hectic streets, gridlock traffic, and honking horns? City parents know the daily challenges of urban life, so why not relax and unwind with your family at some of the “secret gardens” tucked away throughout NYC. From traditional iron-gated brick pathways, to modern urban plazas, to overgrown rustic oases—these hidden gems provide a shady, leafy solace from the concrete jungle we call home. Warmer weather has arrived, so head out! And the idyllic setting is great for family photos.
And if you favor flora and fauna, spring has sprung and its the perfect time to enjoy colorful blooms and springtime sproutings too.
