The docks and waterfront structures marked the edges of Manhattan, yet for those who used to create sex or to create art, these spaces were boundless, their decayed and collapsing state inviting behaviors beyond the limits of public decorum and bourgeois morality.
Public sex on the waterfront not only violated codes of conduct; it cut across boundaries of class, race and ethnicity. For queer writers like #SamuelRDelany, #GuyHocquenghem, and #DavidWojnarowicz, among others, this was central to its revolutionary potential. . . .The waterfront, once a site of capitalist power, was at least from a brief time cracked, open, overrun.
