Liberty Landing Train Station

Liberty LandingTrain Station, originally uploaded by Chris S Thorpe.
A hundred years ago,the CRRNJ (Central Railroad of New Jersey) terminal was the gateway to all points west and often the first destination for immigrants after being processed through Ellis Island. Now a museum and an integral part of Liberty Landing State Park, the terminal was the start of many American success stories. If one listens quietly enough, the echoes of ancestors filled with fear, adventure and excitement can still be heard. The place is a must-see on many genealogy buff's bucket list!
