Book Talk and Signing To Feature Jackson's Highway Under the Hudson
May 21, 2012, 7-9 pm
Barrow Mansion, 83 Wayne Street, Jersey City, NJHolland Tunnel vent tower on Hudson River.
Hundreds of thousands of motorists pass through the Holland Tunnel each year, yet how many recognize its place in transportation history and the development of our region?
How many know the part Jersey City's famous Mayor Frank Hague played in its construction, or how it contributed to the demise of the Pennsylvania and other railroads that once dominated the Hudson River waterfront with their freight and passenger facilities?
National Park Service historian and urban planner Robert W. Jackson
will let us in on the fascinating history of this engineering marvel. Join us for a social and informative evening in the Coalition's continuing series of talks exploring our City's transportation history.
