From 2012 to 2016, photographer and filmmaker Thomas Halaczinsky retraced the 1614 route of Adriaen Block, the first European to sail and map the archipelago of New York, exploring the magical and mysterious island world that stretches from the harbor to the eastern tip of Long Island. His 3,000 nautical mile expedition is documented as a mesmerizing photographic and literary logbook in the recently published Archipelago New York (Schiffer Books, 2018).

Open House New York invites you to take a sunset cruise of New York Harbor with Thomas Halaczinsky to learn about how this vast archipelago of seventy islands affects New York life to this day.
