Scope & Content Digital image of a single typewritten leaf titled "Pier Proposition." Regarding Holland-American Line Fifth Street Pier and Port of N.Y. Authority, Hoboken, no date, ca.1949-1951. 8-1/2" x 11" high. Museum does not own original item.

With pencil annotations at the top and note at the bottom "SPL Counsel" - Special Council.

Originator of this document is not known. The content shows it was not a government body, but apparently some individual who was informed and took strong exception to ongoing consideration of the future of the Hoboken piers and the Port of New York Authority. It does refer to an un-named Port Authority pamphlet of some length ("Page 10 Footnote".)

The date is suggested by the 1947 and 1948 valuations in the text. A finalized agreement with the Port Authority came in 1952.
