Film Friday - Dock and Transport Services 1960s

Dock and transport services in New York in the 1960's - Film 3139

From the Huntley Film Archives. At the about 6 minute mark, there is an aerial view of Manhattan with the HBS in the foreground. It's a good long shot look at the southern end of the railroad and how the HBS relates to the Hudson and Manhattan.

The rest of the film is a great tour of the Port of New York in living red-shift color. The description from the video:
