Description
 
New York is a city of well-known streets & blocks that ramble on & on, into our literature, dreams, & nightmares. But long before Broadway was a muddy cart track, the water was the city’s most distinguishing feature & the rivers the only byways of importance. The city is shaped by the water & the people who have sailed it for goods, money, pirate’s loot, & freedom. Kornblum has spent decades plying its waterways in his ancient catboat, “Tradition.” Here, he takes the reader along as he sails through his hometown, retelling the history of the city’s waterfront & maritime culture & the stories of the men & women who made the water their own. Along the way, he lays bare the character of New York, the world’s city, in all its resilience & audacity.
