Albert's Garden celebrating 50 years on 2nd Street this Sunday

Albert's Garden is celebrating its 50th year coming up on Sunday... when you can stop by the space at 16-18 E. Second St. between Second Avenue and the Bowery between noon and 5 p.m. for some music and refreshments...
And it's a chance to check out the variety of plants, flowers and ferns... not to mention a redbud tree and a small pond with several goldfish (no fishing please) and the bird mural by Belgian artist ROA.

Per the garden's website:
Help us celebrate fifty years of serving the community and welcoming strangers to our small miracle: a picturesque garden that grew from rubble. Sit on welcoming benches, stroll on meandering paths, enjoy the tall trees, rustic walls, and shrubbery, and delight, as many birds do, in this small spot of nature we all need and love.
And as Ramones fans likely know... East Village-based photographer Roberta Bayley shot the Ramones here for PUNK magazine... an iconic image used for their debut record in 1976.
