The Garden

Besides being an oasis of rest and comfort for one and all, the garden provides a small but significant ecological benefit for everyone. The 4,230 square feet of plants, shrubs and trees offset carbon emissions, and the peace and quiet of the garden offer relief from the city’s noise pollution. 

Birds stop by to dip their beaks in the fountain. During the week, it’s a popular lunch spot for people who work in the neighborhood, and on Sundays in warm weather, it’s the site of coffee hour. This past summer, the garden was enhanced with the generous gift of an apple tree from frequent visitors to the church from the Como Hotel group. This tree replaces one that was lost during Hurricane Sandy. Please stop by if you’re in the neighborhood. You will always be welcome here.
