Shipwrecks in New York Waters: A Chronology of Ship Disasters from Montauk Point to Barnegat Inlet from the 1880s to the 1930s
Paul C. Morris (au); William P. Quinn (au). This book is the result of the combination of 2 large collections of maritime photographs by the authors over a period of more than 45 years. Many ships were lost while trying to enter, operate in, or leave the port of New York whose 3 major approaches -- one via the Hudson River, a second through the tricky waters of the East River & the third from the south -- called for the most careful & exacting maneuvers. Fogs, storms, fires & errors in navigation have all added to the long list of disasters. The maritime accidents illustrated vary greatly, from groundings, collisions, fires & sinkings to extraordinary & spectacular incidents. 100ís of photos.
