Formerly the home of Erard A. Matthiessen, today known as ‘Matthiessen Park,’ Irvington, New York. Mr. Matthiessen was a successful architect. The area of Matthiessen Park adjacent to the Hudson River was donated to the Village of Irvington by the Matthiessen family.

I’ve also heard (but so far haven’t been able to verify) that ‘Matthiessen Park’ was formerly known as ‘Tiffany Park’ and was owned by Charles Lewis Tiffany, the founder of ‘Tiffany’s’ and father of Louis Comfort Tiffany.
