Meadowlands: Wilderness Adventures on the Edge of New York City
Robert Sullivan (au); David Diehl (il)
Just five miles west of New York City, the Meadowlands is an untamed 32-square-mile tract of swampland. It is home to rare birds, toxic waste, a sports arena, the remains of the original Penn Station -- and possibly a dead mafioso or two. Navigating the polluted marshes in a canoe, Robert Sullivan proves himself the perfect amateur historian and explorer to tackle this fragile yet resilient region. A memorable ode to an overlooked battleground in the struggle between progress and nature. “Provocative, audacious . . . by looking observantly, without trite moralizing, at the natural world . . . this book suggests a challenging new model for how we ought to pay attention. “You’ll be giving this book for birthdays and holidays as long as you’re alive.” Map.
