Enjoy the Arthur Ross Terrace and Garden—a rare gem of enclosed green space in Manhattan. Open to the public free of charge.
Hood Design Studio, in collaboration with Raft Landscape Architects, evolved the original Richard Schermerhorn, Jr. garden design from 1901. The redesign was inspired by local geology and plantings in Central Park and features new terrace pavers, enlarged garden pathways, colorful plantings and a re-imagined rock garden (rockery). The design honors the historic nature of the garden while providing an improved landscape experience for all.
