Publisher's Summary

The themes of shared experience, the relationship of human beings to one another throughout time, and the ultimate power of place are explored in this poem by one of the most revered American poets, Walt Whitman. Its setting of NYC is dear to narrator Diane Havens, a native New Yorker, a Brooklynite. The devastation to the New York area that Hurricane Sandy caused has inspired this reading of "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" and the rebuilding efforts, so that future generations can work, play, live, and love beside these same waters, homes and places of industry for many years to come.

Some of this recording is quote worthy

Walt Whitman was a man of profound observation. His artistic voice is a vibrant concoction of syncopation and clarity. The voice actress has a soothing voice that does not flow in the same stream. Diane's voice almost sounds bored at times. I'm afraid she didn't know which lines to emphasize, so the entire 15 minute performance comes off a bit monotonous
