Queen Elizabeth II Garden at Hanover Square

The Queen Elizabeth II September 11th Garden, formerly the British Garden in Hanover Square, New York City, is a fantastic example of the strong links between the UK, Commonwealth nations and the United States. The garden – which is a gift to the city and people of New York and has His Royal Highness Prince Charles as its patron – is close to Ground Zero and is in an area of the city with significant historical associations with the UK.

The Garden's newly expanded mission is to celebrate the historic ties of friendship and unity between the United States of America, Commonwealth countries and the United Kingdom. On May 2, 2012 the Dean of Westminster Abbey visited the Garden and formally re-dedicated it as the Queen Elizabeth II September 11th Garden.
