Overview


A vibrant profile of New York Harbor, this illustrated chronicle traces the great port's history from its heyday in the 1930s to the present. Its informative text, complemented by 175 vintage photographs, conveys fascinating details in a conversational tone, making it as interesting to read as it is to browse.
Great Ships in New York Harbor captures the bustling excitement of the busiest marine terminals in the world. It ranges from the elegant sophistication of the ships in the uptown piers known as Luxury Liner Row to the commercial hubbub of the downtown docks and their freighters, tramp steamers, tugs, and barges.
Maritime expert William H. Miller, Jr., ranks among the best guides to the Port of New York. The author of numerous books on ships, he has traveled aboard all manner of vessels, often in the capacity of guest lecturer or journalist. Miller's books feature personal recollections and anecdotes from passengers who sailed on historic ships, and his unique selection of new and different pictures offers fresh perspectives on even the most-well-known vessels.
