New York Harbor was once bustling with tugboats pushing barges with railroad cars on them. Car float operations in New York harbor belonged to over 18 railroads. At their peak, the railroads had 3,400 employees operating small fleets of 323 car floats, 1,094 other barges, and 150 tugboats between New Jersey and New York City. The only surviving car float operation is operated by NYNJ Rail. 

New York New Jersey Rail is a switching and terminal railroad that operates the only car float operation across New York Bay between Jersey City, New Jersey and Brooklyn, New York. It also operates the ex-Port Jersey switching operations and the Bush Terminal switching operations. Since mid-November 2008 it has been owned by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. 

Since freight trains are not allowed in Amtrak's North River Tunnels, and the Poughkeepsie Bridge was closed in 1974, NYNJ Rail’s car floats are the only freight crossing the Hudson River south of the Alfred H. Smith Memorial Bridge which is 140 miles north of New York City. The added cost of that distance has helped the car float survive. 

 

NYNJ Rail carries a wide range of goods including food, consumer goods, recyclables, building materials, scrap metal, lumber, plastic, and large steel beams. NYNJ Rail connects with CSX and Norfolk Southern in Jersey City and with the New York & Atlantic Railway and SBK South Brooklyn Railroad in Brooklyn.
