Aperture is pleased to offer a very special limited-edition print and book box set, featuring three unique components created as part of Meyerowitz's most recent project?a compelling body of work resulting from a commission he received from the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation to document the city's parks. Each custom-designed clamshell box contains a copy of the book Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks with a special-edition bellyband, as well as The Hallett, a limited-edition book featuring one of the artist's favorite spots?the Hallett Nature Sanctuary in Manhattan. The Hallett was designed and printed exclusively for this edition using an HP Indigo Digital Press. Also included is a 10 x 12 inch HP archival pigment print, made personally by the artist. Each book and print is signed and numbered by Meyerowitz.

"Who knew that the five boroughs had so many parks, encompassing 29,000 acres of greenery? In his systematic tour of what is left of the city's natural landscape-and where it is even being enhanced, thanks to Mayor Michael Bloomberg's campaign to plant a million trees-Mr. Meyerowitz uncovers odd and charming hideaways that most native New Yorkers will not have visited or even heard of." -- Richard B. Woodward --Wall Street Journal
"The book is a glamorous celebration of the city's unspoiled open spaces and a poignant reminder that while New Yorkers are consumed by congestion, tens of thousands of acres are occupied by parks, playgrounds, nature preserves, beaches and amusement areas, as well as golf courses, stadiums and cemetaries." -- Sam Roberts --The New York Times
"...a beautiful collection of landscape images, by which Meyerowitz documents, interprets, and celebrates one of New York City's greatest legacies: the 8700 acres within the parkland system in the five boroughs that have been left or returned to their natural state... The book is a true treasure, and not just for New Yorkers." -- John Lavine --Color Magazine
"Without photographic trickery, it is possible to frame images of nature in and around New York City without including telltale clues to the metropolitan environment. That is one of the significant visual coups found in this large-format title, but it is accompanied by other worthwhile disocveries as well. The shots, which range from some of the best-known vistas in Central Park to virtually hidden sylvan details in the northern city outreaches, places us in natural ecosystems that can show the presence and sometimes intrusive hand of people." -- Mike Moch --The Bloomsbury Review
