Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks
Not since the 1930s under Franklin D. Roosevelt's WPA campaign has a photographer attempted to document the nearly 9,000 acres of parks in New York City's five boroughs. Commissioned by the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, renowned photographer Joel Meyerowitz celebrates the beauty of New York's City's parks in the publication of Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks.
