490 1  New York at the turn of the century.

500    Original duration: 3:23 at 15 fps. 
520    Filmed from a moving boat, the film depicts the Hudson 
       River (i.e., North River) shoreline and the piers of lower
       Manhattan beginning around Fulton Street and extending to 
       Castle Garden and Battery Park. It begins at one of the 
       American Line piers (Pier 14 or 15, opposite Fulton 
       Street) where an American Line steamer, either the "New 
       York" or "Paris," is seen docked. The camera passes one of
       the Manhattan-to-New Jersey commuter ferries to Jersey 
       City or Communipaw. Proceeding south, the distinct double 
       towers of the Park Row, or Syndicate Building, erected in 
       1897-98, can be seen in the background . A coastal 
       freighter is next, then Trinity Church appears, to the 
       left of which can be seen the Surety Building, as a tug 
       with a "C" on the stack passes in foreground. Several 
       small steamboats come into view, and the B.T. Babbitt Soap
       factory at Pier 6 is seen, followed by the Pennsylvania 
       Railroad piers (#5 & #4), with a group of docked railroad 
       car floats, and the Lehigh Valley Railroad piers (#3 & #2),
       also with car floats. Next are the Bowling Green Building 
       (rectangular, with facade to camera), the Whitehall 
       Building (vertical, thin side to camera),  followed by 
       Pennsylvania Railroad Pier #1. Pier A (with a clock tower)
       is seen with the New York Harbor Police steam boat 
       "Patrol" at its end. The Bowling Green Offices and the 
       Produce Exchange at Bowling Green are visible in the 
       background. The breakwater (sheltered landing) and the New
       York City Fireboat House appears and the distinctive round
       structure, Castle Garden, once a fort and immigrant 
       station, but at the time of filming the City Aquarium, 
       comes into view. The camera then pans east along the 
       Battery Park promenade: the Barge Office (with tower) is 
       visible in the distance, and further out the Brooklyn 
       shoreline with the grain elevators at Atlantic Avenue can 
       be seen. This view is continued, with only a minor break 
       in continuity, in the film Panorama of Sky Scrapers and 
       Brooklyn Bridge From the East River. Together they 
       comprise a sweep around the southern tip of Manhattan, 
       from Fulton Street on the Hudson to the Brooklyn Bridge. 
520    From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: SKY-
       Beautiful panoramic view of lower New York from Barclay 
       Street to Battery Park, showing a beautiful stereoscopic 
       effect of the sky-scrapers in the business section of the 
       city. Old Castle Garden, at which place hundreds of 
       thousands of emigrants have landed from time to time, but 
       now used as an Aquarium, is also seen in the picture. One 
       of the finest panoramic pictures of New York ever taken.
