A Dream of Tall Ships, How New Yorkers came together to save the city's sailing-ship waterfront by Peter & Norma Stanford with an Introduction by John Stobart, RA; is a lively account of a great urban adventure beginning in the 1960s with two New Yorkers committed to creating a maritime museum in Manhattan's old sailing ship waterfront - the South Street Seaport Museum. Entranced by the old brick buildings of the Fulton Fish Market neighborhood and aware of the rush of new office building construction in Lower Manhattan, they moved to save the old buildings as an historic district, and breathe new life into New York's old Street of Ships. The idea of recreating the old sailing-ship waterfront inspired young and old, rich and poor, Wall-Streeters and blue-collar workers, seamen, firemen, policemen and teachers to work together to found a museum showcasing the streets and ships that built the port, which built the city, which built the nation.
