THE KATHARINE HEPBURN GARDEN

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.

  1. I worked with her briefly in the 80s – and will forward this to someone who successfully approached her for an interview show by throwing a message over the wall probably in photo here!
