Our new book, "More True Crime Bay Ridge," is now for sale! Like its predecessor, this standalone sequel features eleven true stories of thievery, kidnapping and murder, all set in the neighborhood from the 1880s to the 1980s. A landlord, gunned down on Gatling Place. A guidance counselor, blown up on 91st Street. A sophomore at Fort Hamilton, executed in Owl's Head Park. Together, these tales illuminate the neighborhood’s past by focusing on the lives of its unluckiest and most notorious residents, from the bank robbers who ran a roadhouse on 92nd Street to the madam who managed a brothel on 86th Street. The book uncovers a parallel history of this quiet community, which has long had a place on its margins for the dissolute and the doomed.
"Nobody knows Bay Ridge quite like Henry Stewart," says Kevin Walsh of Forgotten New York. "Get ready for another wild ride: in punchy tabloid style, this is a bullet-spattered journey...that you’ll never forget."
