Hoboken Terminal (Lackawanna Sign)

 

Over 50,000 people use the Hoboken Terminal daily, making it one of New York's major transportation hubs. Located on the Hudson River in Hoboken, New Jersey, the terminal is served by nine New Jersey Transit (NJT) commuter rail lines, one Metro-North Railroad line, various NJT buses and private bus lines, the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, the Port Authority Trans Hudson (PATH) rapid transit system and NY Waterway-operated ferries. Built in 1907, the Beaux-Arts style terminal was designed by architect Kenneth M. Murchison.

 

The main waiting room, with its Greek Revival motifs and tiled stained glass by Louis Comfort Tiffany, is considered one of the country's finest.

 

A new clock tower was erected in 2007 to replace the original 225-foot one dismantled in the 1950s due to structural damage. The new tower features 4-foot-high copper letters spelling out "Lackawanna," which shine bright at night.
