Binding: hardcover

Book Condition: New

First and foremost, New York was a city built by waterways. Located on the Atlantic seaboard, the access given to Manhattan Island by the Hudson, East and Harlem Rivers resulted in the rapid industrialization of the city. But those same waterways would be an impediment to the next major mode of transportation that came along - the railroads. The result was that rail trips to and from New York began or ended with a ferry boat ride across the Hudson River. It took the might of the Pennsylvania Railroad to finally establish direct rail service in 1910 with a two track tunnel under the Hudson. Most of the photographs in this book were taken west of the Hudson, because that's were most of the freight action was. Additionally, the passenger trains of the Reading, Jersey Central and B & O were terminating at CNJ's magnificent station in Jersey City. View the last great steam show in the region. All the railroads of the New York area are featured from large to small. But there is no question that this book is about New York. In many shots the Manhattan skyline competes with the trains for attention, and the waterways are intertwined with the railroads. Morning Sun Books, hardcover with dust jacket, 128 pages, 8.5 x 11 x .5 in., all Color photographs with captions. Bookseller Inventory # msb1244
