Enid A Haupt Glass Garden

The Enid A. Haupt Glass Garden is a theraputic garden that is part of the Rusk Institute for rehabiltation. Originally, garden was simply a peaceful retreat from the hospital until a program of horticultural therapy was introduced in the 1970s. The idea was to combine horticultural therapy with medical therapy. Patients work with trained horticultural therapists. Part of the garden, with a beautiful pool, is in a 1,700 square foot greenhouse. The garden is also open to the public.

Rusk Institute, 400 East 34th Street, New York, New York, USA

Daily. Open 8am (noon at weekends) to 6pm.

    I was visiting a family member in the hospital when I came upon the Enid A Haupt Glass Garden. I heard the sound of birds and could view a fish pond from the doorway which looked inviting. On entering however, I sadly discovered that the bunny mentioned above was imprisoned in a cage so small it could hardly turn around and the birds were in equally small cages. It was so sad I was near tears. I urge you to visit the garden and use your voice to change these inhumane conditions.

    This is one of my favorite spots in the city. An excellent place to bring children (there is a children's play garden). It's also a great place to sit and meditate, bring your lunch (the perennial garden), or just browse and look at plants and animals (they have a bunny, fish, turtles, and birds).

    Wonderful, wonderful spot.
