** This is the first Railroad Terminal built in New Jersey on the Hudson River. It provided a terminal connection from the New Jersey Rail Road and transportation company, and the Powel's Hook ferry service to New York City. A uncompleted terminal opened in 1834, when the railroad was being built, and rail service, at this time was only between Jersey City and Newark NJ. At this time all rail service was Horse powered. The first terminal in 1834 was a three track train shed with temporary services. The exact measurements for this train shed are unknown to me, and it seems everyone else. The structure you see here was add to the 1834 terminal train shed around 1839. This part of the terminal was the head house. In it was the ticket office, a waiting room, Baggage and freight services, and corporate offices on the second floor. This is the Jersey City terminal of the New Jersey Rail Road and Transportation Company, as seen in 1844, located on the west side of Hudson street, opposite the Powel's Hook Ferry terminal. Their is no decent drawing of this terminal. So I made one from the bitts and pieces of other views and articles written on this railroad. It is ashame that something like this can almost totally disappear form history. I am trying to bring back a lost building.
