Events at the Harlem Rose Garden
The Harlem Rose Garden (East 129th Street at 5th Avenue) is hosting a number of events in October. Garden members thought it would be a great idea to host a series of laughter filled movie nights and their annual Halloween bash!

To stay COVID friendly we are encouraging members to bring their own personal snacks or dinners.
