Book two of Jersey City's Hudson River Waterfront covers the Lehigh Valley, Central Railroad of New Jersey, Erie, Delware Lackawanna & Western and Erie Lackawanna during the final decades of their operations in Jersey City. The 1950's and 1960's was a period in the history of Jersey City when it's presence as a transportation and industry leader disappeared into the past. Yet even as freight tonnage plunged for the river's railroads, they all put up a good fight for as long as possible. This book will take you back to the old Jersey City waterfront with photos, text and maps to an era of massive changes in the modernizing world.
