'Nirvana' Gardens Pt. 2

Another view of the gardens of 'Nirvana' the William Gould Brokaw estate designed by Little & O'Connor c. 1900 in Great Neck.  Click HERE for more on 'Nirvana'.

Like this view. Very nice terraced garden structure and layout, but obviously very early in it's planting stage so it looks bare but good bones.

This photo does predate the others -- the plantings are young plus the statue hasn't been set in the fountain yet.

I wonder if the Brokaws liked publicizing their garden or if this garden was considered particularly beautiful at the time ... or both?
