This is one of three new models of New York piers we have introduced to represent the kind of pier used by merchant liners and cargo ships to discharge their loads. These piers not only served New York but were built in all large seaports world wide. Models are cast in resin and available either unpainted at £15.00 or painted for £24.00. Dimensions are: 13.6cm x 4cm x 2cm.
The most famour New York piers – see our NY1-6, were the huge piers used by the iconic superliners. However, most of the many piers that served New York had more modest dimensions, whilst still being quite impressive. These were used by many merchant liners and cargo ships to discharge their cargoes. This model, NY9 is just one of three models we have introduced, similar piers were built in all large seaports worldwide. See also NY7 and NY8.
Cast in resin, this Hoboken pier is painted and comes in two parts; the main section measures 26cm x 6.8cm x 2.3cm at highest point. The additional smaller unit measures 6cm x 4cm x 2.4cm at highest point, all dimensions are approximate and colours may vary from illustration. Each of the main piers comes with holes ready drilled to take the etched brass gantries which travel better if separate. £70.00
