Today the Port of New York is where container ships and tankers park while waiting to reload and be on their way around the world. Long black tankers support layered white wheelhouses. Bright orange freighters with pink hulls and white cabins support deck cranes sitting like giant grasshoppers. The orange Staten Island ferries transverse the harbor, passing each other in front of Ms. Liberty through the day and night. The high-speed commuter ferries between Wall Street glide along regal Cruise ships and the new Freedom Tower, higher and more glittering than its predecessor, stands watch at the tip of Manhattan. Heroes of New York Harbor is a collection of human stories--lives that intersected with the Harbor--that appeals to readers of history, family drama, and the power of place to influence lives.

John Ambrose, who had the foresight and dogged determination to force the city to create a deep water channel (later named for him) to ease shipping in and out of the harbor. The Moran and McAllister tugboat families.
Lighthouse Kate, barely five-feet tall, who operated Robbin's Reef Light on a hidden ridge of submerged rocks that once caused numerous shipwrecks.
