Elizabeth Street Garden is a community sculpture garden in Little Italy, open to the public 7 days a week, weather permitting. The Garden hosts all sorts of year-round, free programming, from movie screenings and live music to gardening workshops and yoga. In 2013 the community came together to protect the Garden after learning that Council Member Margaret Chin and the Administration were planning to build housing on the existing site. After several Community Board resolutions and majority Elected Official support in saving the Garden, the fight still continues.
