This is so much more than a field guide. Despite being understandably limited in the parks and species it chooses to cover, this book fills an important need and makes great strides toward promoting a green image of New York City that fights the common stereotypes. Plus it's just a beautiful book - gorgeous illustrations, good layout, high production values all around.
