I am pleased to announce that this year, we will reimagine the Sundial, a long-lost feature of the garden that Samuel Untermyer added in 1937, late in his life. We believe that it was the centerpiece of a circular garden with concentric paths and beds, now all gone. As it was uncomfortably jammed against the Rock and Stream Garden, we plan to shift it to the north, where it will command more interest. Abutting a half-buried rock ledge, it will offer glimpses up the Hudson River and help connect the dots between the Rock and Stream Garden and the future Meadow.
