Wild New York is two books in one--a beautifully illustrated, deftly written natural history of New York City and an indispensable guidebook for the urban explorer. From beneath the city's skyscrapers and between cracks in the sidewalk, nature writers Margaret Mittelbach and Michael Crewdson have shined their unique spotlight on the concrete jungle--and come up with more wildlife and more natural wonders than anyone ever imagined. Wild New York includes:
Dozens of  Wild Facts describing the city's worst snow storms, the best places to watch the sunset, the rarest animals,  the highest points, the healthiest forests, and the hottest spots for bird-watching
Fascinating biographies of the city's animals, from the unsung pigeon and the dreaded rat to falcons nesting on Park Avenue and sharks  lurking off Coney Island
A  history of the city's 1.1 billion-year-old geologic past, including the unearthing of a mastodon's 10,000-year-old bones in Manhattan
Sixteen pages of color photographs, taken by two of the city's most accomplished naturalists, showing never-before-seen views of New York City and its wildlife
Directions for 33 walking tours in parks and wildlife refuges throughout New York City with 18 detailed maps to help urban eco-tourists find nature in the city
