Come out this Saturday to support our friend and local author, Henry Stewart, doing a reading/signing of his new book “True Crime Bay Ridge”. We go way back with Henry and his writing on Hey Ridge is simply the best, a master historian.
Here’s what is says on Amazon:
World-famous kidnappers, shot outside a Shore Road mansion. A local barfly, burned alive in her Ridge Boulevard apartment. A third-grader at St. Anselm’s, plucked off Third Avenue. These are just a few of the true tales of murder, kidnapping and gunplay featured in this collection, culled from the blog Hey Ridge, each set on the streets and in the homes of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
Did the Mafia dump bodies on Oliver Street? Was a would-be serial killer bludgeoning his victims near Flagg Court? Using contemporary newspaper accounts, as well as trial transcripts and out-of-print books, local historian Henry Stewart assembles vivid accounts of the crimes, the victims, the perpetrators and the neighborhood, revealing that this sleepy, suburban community has always had a darker side—which many residents would sooner forget.
