Two Additional Maps
The above map was produced in ARCGIS using New York State Hudson River study shape files. This is a contour map at the end of the study at the Narrows Bridge. I am bringing it in here because in the 1920's, the BMT started construction of a underwater tunnel to Staten Island around this spot. While I am not sure if the right of way would have been at the location of the map above, the water depths that had to been dealt with are shown. Depths are in meters.
