Weekday Sketchers at Elizabeth Street Garden

Public gardens offer an oasis in a city that is calming and regenerative for anyone who steps into them.  The Elizabeth Street Garden is one of those that has served the residents of Little Italy for many years.  A recent court action has severely threatened its existence and it will likely be gone in short order.

Let's go and celebrate this unusual community garden filled with lions, sphinx, artifacts and flowers. Let's sit in the garden and experience the respite that a green space offers as you step off the hot city streets.  Let's capture the shapes and colors in our sketchbooks before it is gone.
