Bowsprite: Central Jersey RR Terminal

One of the glories of 20th Century New York City was the ferry service - from Lackawanna Terminal in Hoboken, and from the Central Jersey RR Terminal in Jersey City. The architectural winner is the Communipaw Terminal (at the foot of Communipaw Avenue). It still gets some use for sightseeing boats but the tracks are overgrown and the Central Jersey line was rerouted onto the Northeast corridor main line, heading to Penn Station (who can resist - they're building another tunnel to get people to the City).

This is BOWSPRITE'S appreciation of the great terminal.
