Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a real pleasure to read. It provides history of New York in terms of geology and ecology. I have to say that I consider this book to be an eye opener for me because it got me into nature and outdoors. Before reading this book, I never thought of much of nature. However, this book got me to be interested in the nature in NYC.

If you are interested in the Geology, Flora and Fauna of NYC and if a remember correctly a little of the surrounding areas it is a real good book even if it is not for a requirement for class!
