The New York Central Weehawken on a run from New York to New Jersey.

....just wondering about the date given for this photo as 1914. The tall building just to the right of the Woolworth Building, known as the Transportation Building was built in 1927...see the link http://www.aviewoncities.com/buildings/nyc/transportationbuilding.htm......Tom

And a closer look at the ferry- that first car on the left (ferry's right lane) looks to be a late 30's or so model; definitely later than 1914...
 
(Nice picture,though.)
