Visitors approaching from the southeast of the original Frick residence pass by an elevated green space created in 1977, known today as the 70th Street Garden. The Frick hired noted landscape architect Russell Page, who configured its composition, conceiving the arrangement of colorful plantings, boxwood, and trees and design of the central fountain and pea gravel paths. Page intended this as a viewing garden rather than one to be entered.
