"The Outdoor Museum," according to press notes, "salutes little known landmarks, and cultural icons as well as the often overlooked urban scenes — young lovers in front of the Broadhurst Theatre, the magic of reflections on Central Park West, reptiles in the subway mosaics under the Museum of Natural History, etc. Each of Margery's striking images in duet with Sheldon's wit, humor and sheer poetry make for an inspiring picture book."

In 2011, Harnick and Baldwin collaborated on "She Loves Him," a CD released by PS Classics and produced by David Frost, that features selections from Harnick's work, including Fiddler on the Roof, She Loves Me and Fiorello!, among others.
