Raphael Toledano, President of Brookhill Properties, LLC, a premier New York based real estate investment company, is pleased to announce its funding and participation in the maintenance and upkeep of the Creative Little Garden, located at 530 E. 6th Street between Avenues A and B.

Since 1982, the Garden has been a sanctuary of peace for the neighborhood and is considered by East Villagers and New Yorker’s alike to be their “community backyard” garden. Members collaborate on the landscaping of the garden, but there are no plots tended by individual gardeners. By doing this, the space has been able to become the tranquil oasis that many recognize it is today.

“We are happy to be giving back to the community in a way that helps maintain a peaceful and safe space for so many East Village’s residents and visitors,” said Courtney Knopf, Executive Vice President at Brookhill Properties. “By contributing to the Creative Little Garden, Raphael Toledano and Brookhill Properties hope to promote a greater appreciation for the environment as well as a close and supportive community.”

The Creative Little Garden is funded solely by contributions and dues paid by their members. There are expenses necessary for the maintenance of the space, but there is no paid staff. The space operates under the jurisdiction of the NYC Parks Department with help specifically from the Greenthumb program and the NYC Council on the Environment.

The Creative Little Garden was voted #1 Best of New York from the New York Daily News in 2012.
