A hidden treasure in New York . A garden dedicated to Katharine Hepburn (1907-2003) who loved flowers and gardening.
Situated near the United Nations at 224 East 47th Street, the garden is near where Katharine lived (244 E.49th St.) from 1931 to the 1990s (when she moved to Connecticut).
After her death in 2003, the intersection of E.49th St. and 2nd Avenue was renamed Katharine Hepburn Place.
If I ever get back to New York, I look forward to visiting this tranquil place.
