Here are two great photographs from Digital Culture of Metropolitan New York of the grand old Steamboat “Harlem,” where the docks received at and shipped from the West Harlem Pier at 111th Street and Eleventh Street, Harlem River, Harlem, NY, 1891.
The Steamboat “Harlem,” carried goods, electeds, residents, everyone from all around, up and down the Harlem River.
Of special note, On April 25, 1873, a special meeting was called to arrange for a suitable steamboat to carry the remains of Brother Benjamin Hegeman to its resting place in Bayville. The Steamboat “Harlem,” was chartered, piloted by Captain Longstreet, for the N. & E. River S. B. Company.
