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.

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.
