The Russell Page Garden at the Frick to be “Destroyed”.

On 5th Avenue in New York City, money is more important than green space. The Frick expansion plan calls for razing the permanent Viewing Garden, designed by renowned British landscape architect Russell Page (one of only two works in the U.S.A)

The Frick Collection’s Russell Page Viewing Garden is an important work of art—and an essential component of the museum’s cultural landscape—which must not be destroyed.



Galen Lee, Horticulturist and Special Events Designer for the Frick, is quoted on the Frick’s archived virtual garden tour as saying: “… this garden is to be viewed — from the street or through the arched windows of the Reception Hall — like an Impressionst painting …” Complementing the Viewing Garden is the landmarked Reception Hall Pavilion, designed by the architectural team of John Barrington Bayley, Harry van Dyke and G. Frederick Poehler.
