Crime on the New York Waterfront

Tuesday, July 06, 2010

Nathan Ward tells the story of the world of the old New York waterfront—which was as violent and mob-controlled as it appears in Hollywood movies. In Dark Harbor: The War for the New York Waterfront, he recounts a web of crime revealed by a New York Sun reporter covering the murder of a West Side boss stevedore, in 1948.

Haven't read Mr. Ward's book yet, but just wanted to say the cover design is terrifically eye-catching. Kudos to the designer!
