The Pennsylvania Railroad was a major presence in Jersey City for a hundred years. Being the Standard Railroad of the World it did everything first rate, including its facilities on the Hudson River. The PRR ran passenger and freight consists up to the waters edge via twin elevated lines that intersected Jersey City. These structures will always be embedded in the memories of all who lived or worked near them. The sound of approaching trains filled the air all day and night as the Pennsylvania Railroad moved its cargo. Up to the 1960s the PRR was a big part of what made Jersey City so unique.
