Queer at the Water’s Edge
This chapter introduces the key material features of the ruined waterfront and some of the political and economic circumstances surrounding its abandonment in the 1960s. These histories are connected to broader narratives of preservation and urban renewal in New York throughout the twentieth century. The chapter also introduces the idea of cruising as a queer method for exploring the history of the waterfront and David Wojnarowicz's work in and around in it.
