The Lotus Garden ... floating above Broadway.
ALERT! Garden lovers! This episode is for you.
We’ve lived in NYC’s Upper West Side neighborhood for decades, and it was not until BCR producer Alina Larson connected us with the people in charge of The Lotus Garden, that we were aware a verdant urban oasis existed a few blocks from our apartment.
Near Broadway—floating twenty feet above W. 97th street -- on the roof of a garage -- dwells a garden that has been tenderly cultivated -- for over 30 years.
Three avid gardeners who are in charge of The Lotus Garden, talk about this UWS escape, with its elder peach tree and babbling lotus pond.
