Alice's Garden is dedicated to the memory of Alice Parsekian who cared from the garden until her death in 2010. Alice was born to Armenian parents, emigrated to Turkey, then the Bronx and later the Webster Women's Residence on West 34th Street. She became a community legend as a gardener and caretaker of public space in the neighborhood.
The garden is located on West 34th Street between Ninth and Tenth Avenues and is a secret, beautiful oasis.
In 2011 the garden was revitalization through a joint venture between the Hell's Kitchen Neighborhood Association, Clinton Housing Development Company, Manhattan Community Board 4 and the Port Authority of NY & NJ.
Alice's Garden opened to key holders in the fall of 2013 and is cared for by a group of community gardeners. Alice's is both a community garden with plot holders as well as a community park for neighbors of all ages.
