"Fortunately, we live in a time when more and more efforts are being made to redeem the city with regard to its relationship with the natural world and a wider encompassing ecosystem. While the urban "sustainability movement" in this country might have its domestic roots on the West Coast, New Yorkers are waking up to this trend and an abundance of progressive politicians, entrepreneurs, activists, and citizens are starting to truly bring about some wonderful changes."
