 About the Book 

New York Waters: Profiles from the Edge is the first book to examine and record, in text and photographs, the lives of the men and women who live, work, or play in and along the rivers and coastal waterfronts that surround New York City. ThroughMoreNew York Waters: Profiles from theEdgeis the first book to examine and record, in text and photographs, the lives of the men and women who live, work, or play in and along the rivers and coastal waterfronts that surround New York City. Through this collection of idiosyncratic individuals—young and old, male and female, of all ages—a picture of a previously unacknowledged New York community emerges, created by the very archipelago on which it exists.The exploration includes all five of the citys boroughs and ranges from its most fabled bodies of water, such as the East and Hudson Rivers, to lesser-known ones such as the Erie Basin Arthur Kill, and Hempstead Harbor on Long Island’s North Shore. A remarkable variety of personal perspectives emerges, revealing what the subjects think about their life and work, and placing the book in the same rich tradition as Studs Terkels classic, Working.
