Broad Channel Through Time by Dan Guarino traces the story of the unique, close-knit community, residing on the last inhabited island in New York City's Jamaica Bay. Variously known as "The Venice of New York," "Little Cuba," "The Small Town in the Big City," and "The Little Town that fought City Hall... and Won " Broad Channel is a place where the past is never far from the present day. Through both vintage and new photographs and information filled text, Broad Channel Through Time explores the vivid and surprising past of the Queens, New York neighborhood that boasted houses on stilts, hotels, dance halls, nightclubs, cabarets, boat races, an outdoor movie theater, an air strip and, during Prohibition, speakeasies and rumrunners. Turn a corner and you will see what is different about Broad Channel and what has remained surprisingly the same. You will also meet its people, past and present, who have made Broad Channel the one-of-a-kind place it is today.
