“One of the park’s best-kept secrets. Open the iron gate, made in Paris in 1894, on Fifth Avenue and 104th Street, and be transported to Italy, France, and England by way of the Central Park Conservatory Gardens. Comprising three gardens with distinct styles—Italian (tiered hedges and a 12-foot-high jet fountain), French (Walter Schott’s romantic Three Dancing Maidens sculpture), and English (shrubs and perennial plants)—this attraction brings a piece of Europe to the U.S”

Park
“ocated at the corner of East 120th Street and Sylvan Place, the land was originally acquired by the City in 1929 for a public bath. It went unused until 1938 when it became an informal sitting park, and was handed over to the Parks Department jurisdiction in 1945. The Harlem Art Park is part of the Historical Signs Project. When you enter the parking lot adjacent to the Harlem Courthouse building, you will notice a gated garden on the south side, which can only be reached from 120th Street. ”
