Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Young Garden (New York, New York)
United States of America -- New York -- New York
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, e-mail correspondence relating to the identification of the garden, and additional images of the garden site.
General:
Located on the roof of the Hospital for Special Surgery on East 70th Street, this was the private garden of the hospital's administrator, T. Gordon Young, who lived at the hospital with his family from 1954 to 1977. It featured a rock garden with an Asian sculpture and an outdoor seating area. The garden overlooked the East River southward to the Queensboro Bridge (also known as the 59th Street Bridge) and what is now the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center. Following Young's departure from the hospital the garden was no longer maintained. Several individuals contributed to the identification of this garden including Nora Lockshin, Michael D. Lockshin, M.D.; David B. Levine, M.D.; and Brad Hess.
Related Materials:
Young Garden related holdings consist of 1 folder (12 safety film negatives; 13 photographic prints)
