Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
We expected Going Coastal New York City: Urban Waterfront Guide to be the definitive guidebook for exploring New York City's 534.5 miles of coastline (and indeed it is), but we were surprised and delighted with its sheer readability.

An ultra-useful guide that brings together all the information necessary to enjoy the waterfront, in a compact, well-organized form.-Phillip Lopate

Going Coastal New York City is the primer on the aquatic Big Apple. If it's wet, it's covered-learn where to sail, paddle and swim on its surface, where to fish and dive in its mid-depths, and even where to be laid to rest on its bottom.-John Waldman
