The Alphabet Reading Garden is an artist-designed garden that is a project of City of Asylum. The Garden is paved with custom-made bricks that are inscribed with hand-written alphabet letters in numerous character systems. The original letters in the bricks were contributed by neighbors and visitors to City of Asylum events, so it is literally a community garden. The Garden anchors the residential end of City of Asylum’s “Garden to Garden Art Trail” that ends at Alphabet City (adjacent to the former Garden Theater). A grant from ArtPlace America supported the construction of the Garden. Click here
