From a riverfront estate once owned by the Great Oom, Pierre Bernard and featured in Woody Allen’s most recent Oscar-winner, Blue Jasmine, Florence Katzenstein cultivates a garden of civic virtue. A founder of historical societies on both sides of the Hudson River, Katzenstein helped create the Butterfly Garden in Memorial Park. On May 31, Katzenstein will host the annual plant sale of the Nyack Garden Club, welcoming the public to view her picturesque property and support the club’s public planting projects.
