Imagine stumbling upon a quiet waterfall, napping on a peaceful lawn bordered by roses in full bloom or strolling along a silent, moonlit shoreline. Sound like an ad for a vacation? It is. And the destination is New York - the one that's hidden in plain sight from tourists and most city-dwellers.
Nestled between skyscrapers or tucked behind brick walls, there are dozens of secret gardens and enclaves that offer harried New Yorkers some solitude and serenity. And, as most of us know, finding a tiny corner where you can spend hours without being disturbed is heaven itself.
So...here's a guide to help you find the perfect escape right here in the city. [D]iscovering some peace and quiet in New York is as refreshing as coming across an oasis in the desert -- Daily News, July 7, 1998
