9. Le Petit Versailles

Le Petit Versailles was founded in 1996 on a lot that housed a former “chop shop”, with entrances on both Houston Street and Second Street. It is a project of Allied Productions, a not-for-profit arts organization, so naturally, a stage is the main focus of this garden. A narrow path of bricks meanders from the Houston Street entrance to the stage, where performers, filmmakers, and visual arts showcase their work, amongst beds of flowers and an arbor covered seating area.
