Book Launch Party for 'Guide to New York City Urban Landscapes'
Saturday, July 20, 2013 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM (EDT)
Foreword by Pete Hamill
Published by W.W. Norton & Company
Ever since the city was founded, its residents began to yearn for fresh, green space and a temporary respite from urban life. Green-Wood is one such space and is proud to be featured in -– and on the cover of -- this wonderful new book starring 38 stunning public places that shape the New York experience.
Discover newly created spaces along the water’s edge, like Brooklyn Bridge Park; repurposed areas like The High Line and Concrete Plant Park in the Bronx; or the more traditional green spaces. As the oldest urban landscape in the book, Green-Wood served as a direct inspiration for many of these sites, including Central Park and Prospect Park.
You’ll enjoy hors d’oeuvres and drinks at this opening soiree, while the contributors tell us how they selected these gorgeous outdoor spaces. Co-author Francis Morrone’s essays have appeared in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times; he was named by Travel + Leisure magazine as one of the best tour guides in the world. Pick up a copy or two and get your book signed! It’s a must-have for those who love urban New York but also cherish the ability to escape its daily strain.
