“City of Ships”

Across one of the chilly metal railings near North Cove Marina in Battery Park City, Manhattan, is an excerpt from Walt Whitman’s poem, “City of Ships.” The boldness of Whitman’s words–mettlesome, mad, extravagant city!–seems particularly appropriate in a neighborhood where I profiled buildings so towering and technical they withstood a catastrophic weather event.

Below is a collection of images capturing a damp post-Hurricane week in Battery Park City, accompanied by the words that adorn its railings.
