Love Where You Live

Why I love where I live

“We in NYC are completely dependent on water that comes partly from the Upper Delaware region.

Water is the source of life and it’s because of the Conservancy’s protection of land that our water is so pure. My land is a part of that. We’re all connected. And we need that connection to the land because it’s also a source of rejuvenation and recreation.”
