The Real Story Behind the War for the New York Waterfront

Wednesday night’s Tenement Talk at the Tenement Museum will feature author Nathan Ward in a conversation about his recent book, Dark Harbor: The War for the New York Waterfront.  The book explores the true stories of murder and corruption on New York’s waterfront that were exposed by a famous New York Sun reporter in 1948, which in turn, led to the famous film, On the Waterfront. Ward will be joined by authors and historians, Kevin Baker, T.J. English, Jessica DuLong, and Pamela Talese. You can read Ward’s blog here.
