Harvey Araton on the Golden Age of the New York Knicks

Email a Friend

Harvey Araton talks about When the Garden Was Eden, the definitive account of how the New York Knickerbockers won their first and only championships, and in the process provided the nation escape from the Vietnam War, the tragedy at Kent State, and the last vestiges of Jim Crow. Araton not only traces the history of New York’s beloved franchise—from Ned Irish to Spike Lee to Carmelo Anthony—but profiles the lives and careers of one of sports’ all-time great teams, the Old Knicks.
