General:
The approach to The Braes (Scottish for hillside) was lined with rows of large maple trees with under plantings of pachysandra and thickly interspersed with blue bells of scilla campanulata. Other plantings included Douglas firs clipped flat on the top and sides, a wisteria that climbed to the roof of the house, azaleas and pink dogwood on either side of brick steps leading down to an iris garden, superb boxwood, and an allee of hemlock. The garden featured several examples of sculpture by Paul Manship and bronze by A. Philminster Proctor. The formal terraced gardens were originally designed by James Greenleaf. Later, Isabella Pendelton made changes and designed the iris garden.

Persons associated with the garden include Herbert Pratt (former owner), Webb Institute for Naval Architecture (owner), James L. Greenleaf (landscape architect, 1912), James Brite (architect, 1912), Paul Manship (sculptor), A. Philminster Proctor (sculptor).

Scope and Contents:
Paper presented at the New York Academy of the Sciences and American Society of Mechanical Engineers Sesquicentennial Forum on Transportation Engineering, August 29, 1967, Waldorf Astoria Hotel, New York, N.Y. [Abstract] "The Problem of end-on transportation for trunk airline passengers is becoming acute. Any number of solutions to carry the passengers closer to their destination have been offered. It appears, however, that VTOL aircraft provided the most practical door to door transportation available today. The Pan Am building Heliport is a striking example of what can be accomplished in this direction."
