I’ve walked along Hudson Street back to my hotel countless times, but the last time I did it, I happened to come across an amazing hidden garden I didn’t know was there. Follow the street north from Tribeca until you reach Barrow Street, just past Golden Rule Wine and Spirits.


Cross over Barrow Street and you’ll come to a little entrance gap in a red brick wall opposite the Hudson Diner. It doesn’t look like much, but when you go inside…

Gardens St Lukes 1

… ta da! You’ll find yourself inside a beautiful and serene hidden garden filled with flowers – and home to 100 different bird species as well as 24 types of butterflies. Who knew?! It feels like you’re in the middle of a city woodland. It belongs to the church next-door called St Luke in the Fields and is open from 8 each morning.
