More > energy and emotions within these stories are of the people, the workers who make the City run.

It brings to life the people who provide the soundtrack, the color, the breadth: those who thrive and those who perish in New York’s wake. Here is a love song to reality, mourning the anguish and championing the everyday. --Author John Pietaro is a writer and musician. By day, he works in the Labor Movement in NYC.< Less
