Welcome to the official website of
Our Mission: To protect & preserve the magic of Elizabeth Street Garden as a public community green space and to determine how NYC Parks & Recreation together with the community can protect this space for generations to enjoy.
On March 5, 2019 ESG filed a lawsuit against the City of New York and the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) challenging their actions regarding environmental quality review of the proposal to destroy and develop Elizabeth Street Garden
ESG has established a strong legal team with Norman Siegel and Kate fletcher to stop the developers from destroying the garden.
The Garden is not yet saved! Consider making a tax-deductible donation towards funding our legal defense fund, PR, garden maintenance & operations, and running free programming for the community!

The Garden is growing...
Elizabeth Street Garden (ESG) is an independent, community lead, 501(c)(3) non-for-profit organization. We are committed to exploring every option available to preserve and protect the Garden and save our much needed Community green space in Little Italy. United by the desire to change the way we save the garden, former members of the Garden’s previous organization, active garden volunteers, and advocates for community gardens came together and formed ESG.
