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.
