Thanks Peter in the 60's and 70's this was a bustling rail station, its a shame that it died off but its good that it became a part of Liberty State Park. I've been in the terminal building (now a ticket stand for the Statue of Liberty) and in comparison, it looks the same in old photographs as it does today.
ps... Happy Easter, greetings from New Jersey
Congratulations on getting this accepted. I have a very similar shot GE turned down. Go figure.
I can't imagine why a shot like this would have been turned down, its not like there are 1000's of abandoned railway terminals on the Hudson River in the Jersey City/Hoboken area that this wouldnt stand out. Did you request a second review on yours?
That being the case, in black and white this really makes it "feel" like the Jersey Central lines are alive again despite the weeds growing under the trainshed.
Great B&W Ray
Thanks Marion, this is the former Jersey Central Railroad terminal out at the end of Liberty State Park, once a commuting hub its now slowly and steadily disintegrating what this used to look like
