Even in the concrete jungle, nature is far from elusive. 

The New York City Parks Department oversees more than 30,000 acres of land in all five boroughs. 

Parks have long provided a welcome respite from busy street life, but for a lot of people they became even more vital during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Urban Park Rangers have been helping New Yorkers and visitors discover and explore the city’s natural world since 1979.

In this episode of "Cityscape," Urban Park Ranger Andrew Brownjohn talks about his role as an Urban Park Ranger, and discusses some of the most fascinating natural wonders New York City has to offer.
