In a Q&A, Rose Harvey commissioner of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation,speaks about her passion for parks and open space and her "special appreciation for Bear Mountain, Harriman, Sterling Forest — you know, that whole system of close to 100,000 acres of natural wilderness-like land — so close to so many millions of urban dwellers. I sneak out all the time for hikes with my family in Sterling Forest, Bear Mountain, and the Harriman system. I also love Fahnestock and Minnewaska."
