This park is named after Samuel Untermyer (1858-), the first lawyer to earn a million dollar fee on a single case in US, and was expertly knowledgeable about horticulture. He’s a partner in the law firm of Guggenheimer, Untermyer & Marshall. His wife was equally endearing, among many things she accomplished was transformed the New York Philharmonic in 1909, and brought Gustav Mahler to conduct the orchestra.

I went on a cloudy day but still captivated by her location and beauty. The Temple of Love that atop of man-made stone hill, although is rebuilt (nothing looked like the old one) but it very enchanting. Looking over the Hudson River, I thought: this has to be the most beautiful place for a wedding in the autumn!
