Hazy Lower Manhattan

The location of this photo is very similar to that of the scene shown on the opening page in this series, but the Manhattan skyline is visible under considerably hazier conditions. 

The relocated Colgate Clock, for decades visible from Manhattan, is in view, somewhat obscured by the "Do Not Enter" sign and its supporting post.  The clock is a symbol of Jersey City's industrial past.  Once upon a time, in the era of great ocean liners docking in Manhattan, it was a sight to behold for passengers on the West Side Highway.  The manufacturing complex upon which it once stood has long since been razed.  Much, much has changed.
