HB02 Hoboken pier Red Star Line
Cast in resin and painted, this Hoboken pier model depicts the Red Star Line pier. Dimensions are approx. 26cm x 4cm x 2cm at highest point. Each comes with holes drilled ready to take the etched brass gantries which travel better unattached. Please note colours may vary from illustration.
This is the second in a set of three new piers we have added to our range. The Hoboken area of New York is across the river from Manhattan Island where the famous luxury liner piers are situated. See our NY1-NY6 models. Hoboken is the area where predominantly German and Dutch speaking immigrants settled. Consequently the main German and Dutch shipping lines built their terminus piers on this side of the river. The Hoboken piers were severely damaged by fire but were rebuilt in similar style to the piers on Manhattan Island. The piers we have modelled formed a compact group and provide a good way of displaying your German and Dutch liners.
