Description

The Hokoken Terminal was originally named the Lackawanna Terminal due to its connection to the Erie-Lackawanna railroad. It was both a railroad and a ferry terminal and it was where the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad Company lines ended near the Hudson River and discharged passengers to ferries ran by the New York and Hoboken Ferry Company. The use of the terminal waned after the Holland and Lincoln Tunnels were completed which allowed cars and buses to drive between New Jersey and New York. The terminal interior is Beaux-Arts, designed by Kenneth Murchinson in 1907. Between 1997 and 1999, Hoboken terminal underwent a thorough renovation and, in 2011, the ferries returned.
