Nestled in 4 acres between 15th and 17th at 2nd Avenue sits a great little park sold to the city for $5 in 1836 Peter Gerard Stuyvesant (1778-1847) and his wife Helen Rutherford, of the richest families in America at this time. The park is bordered by Friends Seminary and the Chapel of St. Georges and makes a nice place for a respite on a spring day.
