• Filmmaker and photographer Thomas Halaczinsky, who splits his time between Brooklyn and Greenport, has been fascinated by the archipelago spreading east from the island the Lenni Lenape Indians called Mannahatta, or “land of many hills,” since he arrived in the city in 1991, an immigrant from Germany who saw this place with fresh eyes. We recently talked with Mr. Halaczinsky about his new book, “Archipelago New York,” which chronicles his travels.
