New York and Brooklyn: with Jersey City and Hoboken Water Front, ca. 1877
The southern tip of Manhattan occupies the center of this print by Currier & Ives. Manhattan is separated from Brooklyn (upper portion of the image) by the East River and from Jersey City and Hoboken (foreground) by the Hudson River. Both HAPAG and North German Lloyd had piers in Hoboken, which was home to a large and influential German-American community. Print by Currier & Ives, New York, c. 1877.
