Riverside Park, New York. .
Fashion, ever seeking to escape from
the nuiltitiole, has fixed its eye signif-
i':..itly upl-u Riverside Park, and even
with the June roses of the present year,
if he looks for it, we shall I Il.iil.,tle ;
find it there in full feather.
This charming suburb has many and
varied claims upon "our notice. It is
ti..t '..nly a delightful resort because of
it.s 4lews and vales, its sunny slopes
and ,iq'uestered dells, its trees and bow-
erQ, and its three-mile. drive on the
:-e-et of tli- bli tT-a dri->.' alr:.ialy pro-

taino in th-e years to -ow H
nal design reveals the artistic touch of
the distinguishedl la,dcape gardener'
Frnederie Law Olmstead, who superin-
tended the emnstructiou of Central
Park, and brought, his valuable expe-
riente to bear upon the dev elonament.
of natur'talbeauties in this quarter. He
drew the picturealfhough its e'xecu-
tion longsince passed ihto other hands.
Within a twelve-mouth the work has
advanced rapidly, and those who have
it -in ehirge seem to. have caught-ait
inspiration from the very enehantmenti
of efleetsalready produced. Blooming-
dale, as we have seen, was the .New-'
port of New York in the olden time--
the watering-place ohe,blue-bloo ,
the resort, of distinguished strangers,
anddthe plic-e'aboveallotliers ifear th&.
city, where social delights were the
study and business' of summer life.
