Hello everyone  
 
Could anybody tell me of a good source for finding photographs (both digital and hard) of the NYC rail and marine operations at Port Morris (see arial photo) in the Bronx? Aslo any infomation on the New Haven at Oak Point would be helpful.  
 
Thanks!

You may get some leads from the Bronx Historical Society.  This is from their web site.

*NOTE: The Bronx County Historical Society also has an extensive collection of Bronx photographs, totaling over 26,000 items, and 105 real estate atlases of The Bronx covering the period from the mid-nineteenth century to the 1960s.
It also has an large vertical file collection of newspaper and magazine articles on Bronx topics containing over 235,000 items. The Society’s Library contains thousands of books and reports about The Bronx.
