And a good slap on the wrist as well; Mr. Riffin usually loses these cases and goes away quietly, but here he has to pay attorneys fees to Jersey City as a result of his tomfoolery.

That second link is a huge PDF (653 pages!) but contains many interesting old photos/maps, like an 1870s photo of the original Bergen Cut, and a 1955 night view of Harsimus Cove Yard. Very cool stuff for the hardcore PRR fan and Jersey City natives....
