Garden Space NYC is the passion project of Green Sky Designs. Sparked from the many evening strolls through the secret gardens of New York’s metropolis, this app is a culmination of years of observation and photography from two of New York’s resident green thumbs. Built out of a desire and a calling to bring city dwellers closer to their urban ecosystem, GardenSpace NYC is a portable tour guide for New York’s coveted open spaces. Using GPS, GardenSpace maps the location of the nearest publicly accessible gardens allowing visitors and residents to green-thumb their way through a comprehensive directory of the cities most desirable outdoor spaces. GardenSpace is an evolving project that currently functions as an interactive field guide for Manhattan gardens. It is replete with stunning photographs of the gardens, along with a description and history of each space, offering users key information about access, garden vibe and facilities present at each garden. GardenSpace was conceived as a community project, a way to build relationships between residents and their environment. We are working to expand this project to include all five of New York’s fine boroughs and you can help. Keep your eyes open and send us photos, descriptions or locations of your local garden hideaway. Gardens featured in our project are from a range of spaces, including churches, community gardens, parks, and private spaces that are shared publically. Download the app, it’s only $1.99, and start spending your spare moments amongst the trees.
