Right across from lower Manhattan, The Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal (CRRNJ) was the heart
of a major transportation network in the 1800’s and early 1900’s, part of a major waterfront industrial area
with extensive freight and passenger transportation.

The CRRNJ Terminal stands with the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island to unfold one of this nation's most dramatic stories:
the immigration of northern, southern, and eastern Europeans into the United States.
After being greeted by the Statue of Liberty and processed at Ellis Island, those immigrants who were admitted,
purchased tickets and boarded trains, at the CRRNJ Terminal, that took them to their new homes
throughout the United States. The Terminal served these immigrants as the gateway
to the realization of their hopes and dreams of a new life in America.
