Elegant row houses, once the homes of Gilded Age magnates, surround Washington Park in Troy, New York. Laid out in 1840, the Park is one of only two privately owned urban ornamental parks in the United States. Troy’s location, at the meeting of the Erie Canal and the Hudson River, made it an industrial center in the late nineteenth century. Its houses imitated the fashionable homes of the wealthy in New York City so well that parts of downtown Troy and Washington Park provided the “old New York” backdrop in Martin Scorcese’s Age of Innocence.
