General Description

The following is the caption by Elizabeth McCausland accompanying the original 1939 edition of Berenice Abbott's Changing New York publication.

Characteristic of the flexibility and small overhead expense of bus lines as against rail transportation are the several terminals in the midtown district, some specially constructed, some in the ground-floor spaces of large office buildings.
