6. Shakespeare Garden

Shakespeare Garden, close to Delacorte Theater, is a tiny flower patch that looks and smells amazing. The garden really feels like a hidden gem, and the fact that no buildings can be seen on the horizon make it even more awesome. (Yes, we know the top of the Swedish Cottage is visible, but it felt like part of the scenery so an exception was made.)
