BRESLIN AND HAMILL: DEADLINE ARTISTS

About

Born and raised in working-class New York City neighborhoods, Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill were products of fractured Irish-American families, and rose through the ranks of reporting without formal training or college degrees. Starting in the 1960s, Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill were household names, writing prolifically for the New York Herald Tribune, Daily News, Newsday and the New York Post, among other papers. 

BRESLIN AND HAMILL: DEADLINE ARTISTS draws on rare archival footage and interviews with Hamill and Breslin (who died in 2017). Offering insights are cultural figures, journalists, editors and those who knew them best, including members of the Breslin and Hamill families.
