Tonight: Mannahatta –
A Natural History of New York City

Travel back in time on Tuesday night to 1609 when Manhattan was home to thousands of species, over fifty-five ecosystems, and the Lenape, who called the island “Mannahatta,” meaning “island of many hills.” Coinciding with this year’s quadricentennial of Henry Hudson’s arrival on the shores of Manhattan, the new book Mannahatta: A Natural History of New York City, reconstructs, in words and images, the wild island as it existed 400 years ago. Join landscape ecologist and author Eric Sanderson and illustrator Markley Boyer as they discuss the decade of work that is behind this astounding work, offering readers a unique window into the ecological history of New York and inspiration for green cities and wild places of the future. Book Launch with Eric Sanderson, author, and Markley Boyer, illustrator Tuesday, May 5, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m., at the Municipal Art Society FREE, but reservations required. RSVP online or call 212-935-2075
