Designed two years before architect Calvert Vaux persuaded Frederick Law Olmsted to partner with him on an entry to the competition for the design of New York City’s Central Park, Hoyt house and its promontory setting (known both individually and together as “The Point”) stand as a seminal example of the approach to picturesque design that Vaux, in partnership with Olmsted, would further develop and apply on a civic scale in Central Park. In this regard, the seeds for Central Park and for Vaux and Olmsted’s legacy-from the launching of the park movement, to the founding of the profession of landscape architecture, to the shaping of the American landscape for generations to come-were all planted at the Point.
