Looking down the corridor from the Manhattan side

Magnificent picture! Man, what great childhood memories this classic view brings back! This photo was taken at the old Hudson Terminal in Lower Manhattan (built by the H&M in 1909); in 1971, this historic complex was closed when the new WTC Terminal (destroyed on 9/11) opened, and demolished shortly thereafter. Nothing remains today of this magnificent, echoing cathedral of commerce; I am most fortunate to own a wooden, early PATH-era "Hudson Terminal" platform sign, purchased many years ago at one of the old Hoboken Terminal festivals. This awe-inspiring shot reminds us of a long-lost era, when rail facilities, even those for rapid transit, were often magnificent structures of dignity and beauty.
