More from the archives . . .  aerial of Pier 40 and the Holland Tunnel vent . . . photo said to be taken in 1955.


Photo said to be “three-masted schooner” in 1937.  Clearly that’s not a schooner there with the GW Bridge in the background.  Anyone know what sailing ship that might have been?


Photo by Sam Brody February 1938.  Ferry Hackensack foreground with Jack Frost Sugars over on the Edgewater, NJ side.


Todd Shipyard, 1935-41 . .  .  Here’s a list of what was built there and an aerial view (you may have to scroll horizontally) of what it today is occupied by IKEA.


SS Normandie . . . headed for the North River piers.


City of Chattanooga December 1937.


Brooklyn docks as seen from Brooklyn Heights, November 1937.  Here’s a Munson Lines flyer.


Here’s the schedule–sorry for all the repetition–for Wednesday evening’s documentary portion of the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival, where Graves of Arthur Kill will be shown.  Gary and I will hang for a while at Park Plaza Bar after the show. It may be mobbed?

She came into the boro less than a year ago, and only yesterday did I catch her close up.  Enjoy.

View of the afterside of the house.

Backing from the dock and rotating 180 degrees . . .   note the Empire State Building off to the northeast.

Portside three-quarters view of the house.

Starboard view with the W in Hoboken in the distance.  No really . .  this isn’t “product placement.”

Shots all from Pier 40 . . . now with Stevens Institute of Technology in the distance.   Unrelated . . . Alfred Kinsey was born in Hoboken and his father taught at Stevens.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp, who left this part of Pier 40 to visit Village Community Boathouse.  And related to that, check out a new site linked to my blogroll:  DoryMan.

Totally unrelated . . . or entangled:  that red color, fires, and the Empire State Building, check out this Valentine’s Day story.  And wilder than that, a boat dance happening most of a year ago not far from Pier 40.
