5.0 out of 5 stars Great Photos and History 31 Mar. 2007
By Jeffrey Ornstein - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a superb look at New York's Harbor and the great ships that sailed to its port. There's many fantastic ariel shots of NYC in the pre-steel and glass era. Lots of history of the ports of Brooklyn, which served passengers as well as the retrofitting of many visiting ships. There's several modern day photos as well, including the liner Norway passing the World Trade Center on September 5, 2001.

If anything could be added to this book it would be some pre-1935 shots of NYC's harbor, and possibly some color photos. But overall, it is a unique book for anyone who has an interest in New York City and great Ships.

This is a very good overview over the golden era of New York shipping.

I'm always fascinated again whenever I look into the book. It's marvellous!

I can only recommend this book of William H. Miller jr. to all ship- lovers and New York harbour and luxury liner-row fans!
