New York City, A Wilderness

By  | 

nycwildernessWelcome to New York City, site not just of the Empire State Building, the United Nations headquarters, Broadway, Madison Avenue, and Wall Street, but also of “the craggy highlands of Manhattan, the sea-facing marshes of Brooklyn, the rocky, Maine-like coastline of the Bronx, and the nearly impenetrable forests of Queens and Staten Island,” according to the Museum of the City of New York which is presenting Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks through March 21, an exhibition of the photographs of Joel Meyerowitz, who for the past several years has been exploring the 29,000 acres of official parkland within the borders of the five boroughs of New York City.
The 90 prints include some that are as large as the gallery walls on which they are hung.
