The “Timeshare Backyard” has returned for a second consecutive summer. The green yard in the East Village is wedged between two buildings.
The place comes with amenities including a grill, plastic coolers and lounge chairs. But the sound of taxis honking their horns just beyond the fence is a reminder that this yard is right in the middle of Manhattan.
The yard is open through the end of August. Construction is set to begin on a building there sometime in the next two years.
