There’s a new park at Pier 26, (along the West Side highway, between Hubert and No. Moore). My favorite parts are the deck chairs, lounge chairs, and swings, like the kind of swings they have on porches, that are placed along the pier. It’s like sitting on the deck of a boat. If I lived near here I’d take a book and curl up to read in one of these chairs.
I've written six non-fiction books, the most recent is Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York.View all posts by Stacy Horn →
