This garden is named for nearby 132nd Street in Harlem. Colonized by Dutch farmers in the late 1600s, this area was originally named Nieuw Haarlem. The rural community became a battlefield in the American Revolution as the Continental Army repelled the advances of British Troops in a skirmish that spanned Manhattan’s northern end. Evidence of the battle of Harlem Heights appears in records covering the area from 110th Street to at least 164th Street.
