  • Pretty sure that second image is not from Washington – its a great shot, but I think that the Boston Public Library must have it mislabeled – New York or Boston perhaps?

    • Jon

      agreed, there is no way that is DC. When did we have a train station connection to a port of that size?

    • Yeah, that pic has been driving me nuts all morning trying to figure out where exactly it is.

  • Sandy

    That second photo is definitely the Battery, at the southern tip of Manhattan. That’s clearly the old Staten Island Ferry building.

  • Tim

    I thought I was going crazy – but….great pic none the less
