Audio Preview

New York Harbor

Liberty Island is located in Upper New York Bay (known as New York Harbor). It receives the waters of the Hudson and East Rivers (visible on either side of the Manhattan) and gives access to the Atlantic Ocean through the Narrows. The first Europeans to anchor at the entrance of New York Harbor thought it was a lake. The harbor offered reasonable protection from wind and ice and gradually grew to become the leading port in the United States.

Leonidas Argyros

A grumpy man with a PhD. He is fascinated by words; when he sees them forming beautiful sentences he feels like an apprentice wizard who just produced fancy potions out of cauldrons full of frog legs and tears of bats. In his spare time he roams about town or watches anything produced and narrated by Sir David Attenborough, an inexhaustible source of similes. In Canada, he learned to love the cold, but he is much happier working in Athens.
