Content: "The lower end of Manhattan with the bay as shown in this photograph is undoubtedly the busiest spot on earth. All conceivable methods of transportation which link New York City with the surrounding cities and islands, as well as all over seas travel, pass this spot. Subways under ground and under water, surface cars and elevated railroads radiate from lower Manhattan. In the foreground of the bay is Governor's Island, Long Island to the left and Staten Island in the distance. The Statue of Liberty may be seen to the right."--printed on verso.
