There once was a garden

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden, besides it's famous Japanese Garden that is still in existence, once sported a magnificent rock and pebbles garden that was a replica to the one in Kyoto that I visited long ago. For reasons only known to the garden's big shots, this garden was destroyed to make way for some pathetic children's garden that could have been created elsewhere. These images from the seventies show what the place was like. There's nothing like progress to mess up things.
