Black and white photograph, 8 inches by 10 inches.
I believe this photo was taken from the New Jersey side of the Hudson River, somewhere near Hoboken or a bit further west. If you look in the background, you can see a faint outline of what I believe are the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings.
The placement of the railroad tracks, the marshy area as well as the two large radio towers seem to line up. Please comment if you find otherwise!
