New York Waters: Profiles from the Edge
by Randy Duchaine
Throughout history, the working people of the New York waterfront have contributed to the expansion of the United States through their work on the New York Harbor, the Hudson River and the Erie Canal. Today, these workers still provide services to the Maritime trades, both professionally and as enthusiasts. They bring a cultural richness that adds enormous value to our city and boroughs.
I have been inspired by my encounters with these great influencers. My camera has been a great opportunity to meet and honor them all.
