The Garden Guide

Paley Park

One of the most admired urban 'pocket parks' in the world. An outdoor room of 15.2m by 30.4m, it has a waterfall-wall, trees, chairs and paving. 'Few human-made places provoke such unequivocal praise. It has become one of Manhattan's treasures, a masterpiece of urbanity and grace.. memorable because it makes no effort to be so' (Alan Tate)
