Reply to "Old New York"

Joe F, thanks for the link to the ferry terminal videos.  Many a time I came across the North (Hudson) River on those ferries.  I remember that streetcars, with their open sides in the summer.  On a warm day, with a southerly breeze, there was an overpowering stench of hot blood from the New York Butchers Dressed Meat Company slaughterhouse a few blocks down.  Those ferries had reciprocating steam engines, great to watch down the gangway hatches from the car deck.
