Lately I’ve been fascinated with the South Street Seaport. I’m a big reader, so when I picked up this book I was drawn in immediately by the historic and architectural richness of the area. The seaport is an enigma, of sorts – traditionally tied to the Fulton Street Fish Market, commerce, industry, and even organized crime.
I’m also getting fascinated with the author of the book. It would seem that Barbara is more than just a writer. Indeed, she’s been exhibiting her photography for decades in Manhattan galleries.
Here’s just one of the images from her site. Check her out. This book is riveting, as are the photographs she presents. It’s worth a look.
