Can Science Help Build Happier Cities?

The garden was mentioned on today’s Science Friday show on WNYC this afternoon. The show featured a writer who took a walk with Ira Flatow “through New York’s Lower East Side earlier this week. Their first stop was the Sara D. Roosevelt park. He described it as “a splash of green in a sea of grey.”” He describes the garden itself in detail including the chess table, park benches, well-kept greenery, with the theory that peaceful green spaces are good for you. No great surprise to us.
