NEW YORK CITY GARDENS:

ROOFTOPS TO SIDEWALKS

Having photographed more than 300 NY City gardens over the past two decades, Betsy Pinover Schiff has made a careful selection for this talk in order to best show the enormous diversity of gardens in terms of design, style and plant material. These will range from gardens developed by the Rockefeller family in the 1930’s to very contemporary gardens that defy the traditional definition of the word.

Much of the talk will focus on plantings, parks and gardens that can be seen simply walking the city sidewalks – the subject of Ms. Pinover-Schiff’s newest book, The Sidewalk Gardens of New York, published by Monacelli Press in September 2016, with a text by HAH board member Alicia Whitaker.

The lecture will be an eye-opener to even the most seasoned New Yorkers and garden-lovers. Ms. Pinover Schiff assures us that much will be new and surprising.

Adrian Benepe, former New York City Parks Commissioner, in writing the foreword to The Sidewalk Gardens of New York, says “Betsy Pinover Schiff’s unerring eye and spectacular photographs tell the story of a city, and how its pre-Dorothy and Oz colorless and downtrodden existence has been redone as if by wizardry in glorious Technicolor.”
