Constance Haydock: "Gatsby and Beyond: The Fabled Gardens of Long Island's Gold Coast"
Jericho Public Library
1 Merry Lane
Sunday, April 14, 2013, 2:00 p.m.
Landscape architect Constance Haydock will speak on the gardens of Long Island's Gold Coast at our April 14th meeting. Originally comprising vast areas of the North Shores of Long Island, the Gold Coast was a favorite retreat of the rich and famous. Beginning around the turn of the century and through the 1920s, the North Shore was the place to be for some of the most notable Americans. Along with grand houses, they built elaborate gardens, hiring such notable architects and landscape architects as Delano and Aldrich, Carrere and Hastings, the Olmsted Brothers, Beatrix Farrand, and Ellen Biddle Shipman. Discover the gardens, as they were originally built, and learn about their history, landscape design, and present condition. This illustrated lecture is co-sponsored by our host, the Jericho Public Library.
