Elizabeth Street Garden

Hidden away in Little Italy, lies a garden on the side of an antique store. It is called Elizabeth Street Garden. In it lie various sculptures and flowers. It is used for summer movie showings as well as meeting places for people. Even a quiet place to sit and read. Sadly, the city is trying to get rid of it and put in affordable housing. Take a look at what a unique place this is and why it should be saved.
