Radio Diaries: Neil Harris, one among many buried at Hart Island

Hart Island is where bodies in New York go when they are unclaimed or unidentifiable. One man buried there had lived two lives, in different places and under different names.

This story is the first in a series called The Unmarked Graveyard: Stories from Hart Island. You can find a longer version of the story, and other stories about Hart Island, on the Radio Diaries Podcast.
