Join photographer Joel Meyerowitz and Phillip Lopate, author of "Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks" (Aperture, 2009), for a discussion of the hidden pockets of wilderness that still exist within the city.
Legacy is part of a larger project that was initiated in 2006, when Meyerowitz was asked by Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe to photograph the 29,000 acres maintained and protected by the New York City parks system. When completed, the project will constitute the first extended documentation of New York's parks since the 1930s.
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks."
