Guide to NYC Urban Landscapes: A Book Talk 11/20

New York City is easily-recognized worldwide by its skyscrapers and densely-populated urban environment. Robin Lynn and Francis Morrone in their newly-published Guide to New York City Urban Landscapes point to the less obvious—the city’s low-scale open spaces, as inspiring as those found in nature. Join FRIENDS for an illustrated lecture on places and landscape design, from 19th century cemeteries to the Upper East Side’s Conservatory Garden, with stops in-between. Morrone, rated one of the best tour guides in the world by Travel + Leisure magazine, provides an exciting insider’s look at New York’s outstanding and surprising urban oases.
