"Silent Beaches, Untold Stories is a lush, inspired reminder that New York's waterways were once its lifeblood. Dense with fanciful discoveries and hidden treasures, it evokes--and echoes--the richness of the New York waterfront itself." Jennifer Egan, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Visit from the Goon Squad.

"A truly beautiful work. At a time when progress on the waterfront is measured in miles of promenades and acres of vertical developments, Silent Beaches reminds us that even the most robust products of human labor are no match for the agencies of time and the eternal cycles of nature."Kevin Bone, Professor of Architecture, Cooper Union, and author of The New York Waterfront, Evolution of the Port and Harbor and Water-Works, The Architecture and Engineering of the New York City Water Supply
