Creative Little Garden (E. 6th Street between Avenue A and B) is one of my favorite spots in the East Village. It is not big in terms of area, but it is spacious, even more so for those who are able to enter stillness through nature. I like to sit here, listen to the birds, look at the flowers, read, write, or do nothing and just be. It’s peaceful and quiet, a wonderful place to meditate. It’s open from 11am to 6pm, from April 1 to November 1.
