Frick Collection to Keep Its Revered Garden

New York museum lovers rejoiced this week when the Frick Collection, one of America’s premier museums, shelved a major expansion plan that would have destroyed its widely-admired Russell Page Garden, a vest-pocket paradise where pear trees, quince, wisteria, water lilies flourish. The planned demolition of the garden sparked worldwide condemnation. Museum officials were stunned by the outcry. The museum was the originally the home of steel magnate Henry Clay Frick.
