Dear Friends of Untermyer Gardens:
Untermyer Park and Gardens has recently experienced a media bonanza. Following the coverage by Martha Stewart on her blog and video tour last year, her Martha Stewart Livingmagazine has featured us in the October issue. Entitled "Return to Splendor," the article calls Untermyer "one of the great American horticultural treasures."
Now we know that 30,000 visitors came to the gardens in one day, October 29, 1939 (see the New York Times article below), so we shouldn't brag, but I think Samuel Untermyer would say that we are on the right course.

Chairman, Untermyer Gardens Conservancy
