NEW YORK HARBOR 03.29.07

The watersheds that feed into New York Harbor are home to more than 20 million people, and its combined ports handle nearly 40% of all shipping trade in the North Atlantic. Its human speciation has been famously self-involved for centuries, but has recently become somewhat more thoughtful toward the larger systems that sustain it. Progress is uneven.
