Top 10 Greatest Gardens in NYC — #9

Noguchi Museum Garden

9 Noguchi GardenAn artistic oasis in the mostly industrial northwest corner of Astoria, Queens, the Isamu Noguchi Museum is a peaceful and fascinating exhibition of sculptures from the famed Japanese-American artist. The garden, within the museum walls, offers some of Noguchi’s most beautiful and precise sculptures, including a fountain similar to the one found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A perfect spot for meditation and reflection, this is one of the hidden gems of the city’s largest borough.
