The ongoing installation of mosaics in the Persian Pool is a sight to behold. The design elegantly mixes stylized whirlpools that are Art Nouveau in character with colorful, intricately detailed sea creatures. I have often said that Samuel Untermyer’s swimming pool was one of the two greatest in America—the other being at Hearst Castle in California—and it will soon be true again.
