The rocks in the The New York Chinese Scholar's
Garden on Staten Island were selected as carefully as the
plants in the design. Water-weathered rocks have been prized in
Chinese garden design for centuries, with special honor given to
those from Lake Tai. Boulders were sometimes placed into that
fabled lake by a person as a gift for a great grandchild who might
claim it once it weathered.
