Garden at St Luke in the Fields

A city garden is a very special place: It offers respite from the hubbub of the city with green leaves and and colorful flowers away from the brick and concrete.  There are many hidden gardens in the city, both public and private and one of the nicest is the garden at St. Luck in the Field on Hudson Street just below Christopher Street. 

Step into the garden. Focus up close on the beautiful flowers or zoom back a bit and frame the people sitting on the benches among foliage. Walk around the property and take in the old architecture and  stained glass.  No matter what you choose it will be lovely.
