Publisher's description: In the early twentieth century, luminaries such as Grosvenor Atterbury, Charles W. Leavitt Jr., and Frederick Law Olmsted designed dozens of high-end, carefully conceived communities on New York's Long Island. Gardens of Eden covers the history and development of more than twenty of these remarkable communities and the colorful, at times unscrupulous personalities behind them -- like Plandome, designed for teachers only, and the Metropolitan Museum's Munsey Park, where all the streets were named for artists -- with writings from their most knowledgeable historians.
