This week Curbed published a fantastic map of New York City’s secret gardens, lush green spaces that the average person doesn’t even know are out there to be enjoyed by all. One such place is the Central Park Conservatory Garden, just off East 105th Street in the quiet northeast corner of Central Park. It’s a beautiful spot we’ve become much more familiar with ever since the launch of One Museum Mile, which is located just a few steps away.

The Conservatory Garden, the Central Park website explains, “is divided into three smaller gardens, each with a distinct style: Italian, French and English. The Garden’s main entrance is through the Vanderbilt Gate, on Fifth Avenue between 104th and 105th Streets. This magnificent iron gate, made in Paris in 1894, originally stood before the Vanderbilt mansion at Fifth Avenue and 58th Street.” This photo was taken last month, with the cherry blossoms in full bloom. Not a bad place to call home, right?
