Green Metropolis Book CoverCheck our catalog for: Green Metropolis: What the City Can Teach the Country About True Sustainability

What's the greenest city in the US? Would you be surprised if someone told you New York City? If so, David Owen makes a compelling case in Green Metropolis why New York City is one of the greenest cities in the United States and why much of what passes for being green and sustainable is neither. An interesting read that's not afraid to take on some of the sacred cows of the environmental movement while offering solutions for how we can build more sustainable and environmentally-friendly communities.
