Rockaway Native Authors Book
On New York Knicks
Marc Berman, a 1982 Beach Channel High School graduate, has just come out with a new book on the New York Knicks, entitled "Living Without Ew: The Crash of the Post-Ewing Knicks."
The Rockaway native has covered the Knicks for the New York Post for the past three seasons. The book chronicles the 2000-2001 season, the first without center Patrick Ewing.
Berman’s first sportswriting stint came at the Rockaway Wave when he was in high school, writing about Beach Channel sports under the tutelage of the legendary Bernard Walder. Berman’s mentor at Beach channel was Harry Gross of BCHS’ English Department, who oversaw production of the school newspaper, Seascope, when Berman was sports editor.
"I am thankful to have had excellent mentors, both at Beach Channel High School and at Rockaway’s local weekly," says Berman. "They gave me the solid foundation on which my career was built." Berman has worked as a full-time sportswriter since 1986, when he graduated from the State University of New York at Albany.
