LaGuardia Corner Gardens is an award-winning community garden in the heart of NYC’s Greenwich Village.  It is a place of natural beauty, where the visitor can find an oasis of calm in urban surroundings.  During the growing season visitors can enjoy a dazzling display of daffodils, tulips, irises, peonies, roses, and other perennials, as well as shrubs and fruit trees. 

The garden was created in 1981 by volunteers on a strip of barren land.  It is maintained and supported by volunteer members.  LCG is registered with GreenThumb and is a designated Backyard Wildlife Habitat and Monarch Way Station.  The garden has trees, shrubs, and perennials that attract birds, butterflies, and bees.

In the spring members conduct programs for local school-children.  Garden events include seasonal celebrations, events for children, and a variety of musical offerings. 

LCG is proud to be among the LaGuardia Gardens and the Time Landscape in forming the “ribbon of green,” a flow of green spaces along the east side of LaGuardia Place, from West 3d to Houston Street.

The garden’s location, between Washington Square Park

and Soho, attracts visitors from around the world.  LCG is easily reached by public transportation.

Save the Garden, the Strips - Oppose NYU Plan 2031!

NYU plans to demolish the one-story supermarket next to the garden.  It will be replaced by a public school or by an NYU building, closing the garden during demolition and construction.  The new building will cast the garden in shadow, ending the flower garden cultivated over more than thirty years.  CB2 unanimously rejected NYU Plan 2031; the NYC Planning Commission and the NYC Council approved it.  Please support the NYUFASP, which has brought an action against the City to stop NYU.  See the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation for current information.  See also CAAN2031, a coalition of community groups that oppose aspects of NYU’s Plan. To learn more about the ongoing effort to make the garden permanent, read News.
