In English and German (German see below / Deutsch siehe unten)

Orchard Alley is further down East 4th Street block on the south side, close to Avenue D and city housing projects. As one of the last gardens created in an extremely large lot, there was not a lot of initial optimism that it would survive the onslaught of the city’s bulldozers. Much to the delighted surprise of all those who labored to remove rocks and then create the garden, it not only has survived but has flourished as one of the premier horticultural gardens in the neighborhood replete with fruit trees, flowers such as alliums and tiger lilies, herbs, and winding paths. Its lot is large enough to reach East 3rd Street, but the entrance is only through East 4th.

Orchard Alley befindet sich weitere südlich an der East 4th Street, nahe der Avenue D und den Stadtwohnprojekten. Als einer der letzten Gärten gegründet, in einem extrem länglichen Flurstück, war man wenig optimistisch den Angriff der städtischen Bulldozer zu überleben. Ganz zur freudigen Überraschung von all denjenigen, die sich angestrengt haben, die Felsen zu entfernen und dann den Garten zu bauen, überlebte dieser nicht nur, sondern wurde zu einem prämierten Garten der Nachbarschaft. Zahlreiche Wege schlängeln sich in ihm und er ist übersät mit Obstbäumen und Blumen wie z. B. Bärlauch, Feuerlilien und Gewürzen. Das Grundstück ist groß genug um bis zur East 3rd Street zu reichen, jedoch befindet sich nur ein Eingang auf der East 4th.
