Dan Barry's weekly New York Times column 'This Land' was recently titled "A Place Just Like Every Other Place. Only Not," and featured an interview with Kevin Fry, Scenic America president, and Brad Cownover, Scenic America's director of conservation services. Click here to view the article.

NY Times slideshowFry and Cownover accompanied Barry on a tour of a suburban landscape near Washington, D.C., and discussed the impact of the built environment on the collective human condition. Barry juxtaposes the unique, unforgettable American landscapes he has seen with the "familiar and hideous commercial stretches that all but dare us to guess the state we are in."

Supplementing the column is a fantastic slide show narrated by Kevin Fry.
