Page [1]: We've Change Stations.
Page [2]: All Erie Trains (except certain commuter trains) Now Arrive and Depart from Erie-Lackawanna Station in Hoboken New Jersey instead of Jersey City.

This publication is one of the earliest where Lackawannna Terminal is now called Erie-Lackawanna Terminal (or Station as the text above put it.) The inset map on page [2] uses Erie-Lackawanna Terminal and the one on page 18 calls it Erie Terminal, Hoboken.

The Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad is not mentioned in any text. The Barclay Street ferry which was operated by the D.L. & W. is part of route directions for getting to Hoboken along with the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad or " Tubes." Motor coach (bus) service is offered from Rockefeller Center to Hoboken via the Holland Tunnel. The maps do not depict the Lincoln Tunnel or mention a route using it.
