Notes
Survey number HAER NJ-108
Building/structure dates: 1907 initial construction
Significance: The Hudson and Manhattan Railroad (H&M) Repair Shops are significant as the first repair and maintenance facility for the H&M and for the innovative rail car elevator lift located inside the building that allowed rail cars to be hoisted from the subway tunnel up into the shops for repairs. The H&M Shops are also significant for historical associations with the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad Company which initiated rapid transit from Manhattan to New Jersey in 1908 and for association with William Gibbs McAdoo, builder of the first trans-Hudson rapid transit tunnel.
