Significance: The Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad (DL&W) Long Slip Canal contributes to the Old Main DL&W Railroad Heritage District. Long Slip was significant for its critical role in facilitating the transfer of goods from lighters (a flat-bottomed, often unpowered barge used in unloading or transporting goods short distances) to freight cars. Long Slip, which was served by two sixty-ton gantry cranes used to transfer heavy export freight, was a major factor in the success of the DL&W's export freight operations.
