Terra cotta hexagonal plaque and tile border removed from the Cortlandt Street Station in the 1970s.
The plaque shows the Cortlandt Street steam ferry that used to shuttle commuters across the Hudson River between New York and New Jersey. Although it is a single clay tile, the plaque has surface lines filled with grout, mimicking a mosaic of small ceramic pieces.
