Scope & Content [Hoboken waterfront map] Port Facilities at Port of New York, Hudson River - New Jersey. War Department, Corps of Engineers, U.S. Army; United States Engineer Office, First District, New York City, June 1924. Map 4. PDF on file.

Printed map, printed in black, 9-3/8" high x 18" wide; three hole punched left margin. Because map is apparently reduced size, scale is interpolated from sheet where it is approximately 1/3 of an inch equals 200 feet, thus: Scale of feet: ca. 1" = 600 feet.

With: facsimile leaf listing the references shown on the map. Leaf is titled The Port of New York - List of Piers, Wharves, and Docks.

This map is number 4 (seen at lower right corner) and was apparently part of a report as the facsimile leaf listings refer to a Part 2 and a page number for descriptions.

Text as found for map reference numbers 97 to 139 related this map (see notes for all references.) NOTE: although some state that they are found on Map 3, numbers 97 ot 116 are present on this map and so are included. There was apparently some overlap of maps.
