Fordham Conversations
Tapping into the Fordham University community to discuss and uncover issues that impact our world locally and beyond.

Before waterfront redevelopment, and before waterfront decay, New York's waterfront was a world of its own. As part of WFUV's new Strike a Chord campaign, we look at that world--New York's longshoremen, organized crime, and how it inspired a classic film. Our guest is James Fisher--his book "The Irish Waterfront and the Soul of the Port", is forthcoming from Cornell University press.
