HarlemCondoLife attended the official book launch of The National Parks: Our American Landscape. We wanted to see exactly what this book entailed since a portion of the proceeds are going to National Parks. The entire evening ended up being more than we expected. First, we learned that a book about National Parks had not been published in awhile. And second, Ian Shive, the photographer, took time to tell stories with the guests one-on-one about how the book came to light.

We asked Shive what he takes away from this project. “I encourage people to go visit a national park. You may see something you have never seen before.”

If you want a nice coffee table book for your office or home that will spark interesting conversation, we recommend buying this book. Plus it’s $40. Not bad since it will help our National Parks, such as General Grant National Memorial in Harlem.


HarlemCondolife readers are cordially invited to attend a lecture, Q&A and booksigning on the upcoming release of The National Parks: Our American Landscape with photographer Ian Shive. See exact details below. Why should you attend? A portion of the proceeds are going to the National Parks and the General Grant National Memorial, which is located in the Morningside Heights section of West Harlem. HCL will be there! Hope to see you there!
