Newark olden days

Newark passenger station, Pennsylvania Railroad waiting room. 12 June 1935.

Four kinds of transportation enter Newark’s new Pennsylvania Station on four levels. City transit lines take to the subway, while the inter-city trains from downtown New York , via the Hudson tubes, will emerge on elevated tracks still under construction on the left. Busses and taxicabs arrive on surface level. Through trains pass under the long shed on a fourth level. Escalators convey travelers to the covered passageway across the roof.

Michelangelo Antonioni's 'Blow up' was released on 22 December 1966
