The work of this artist is similar to Yenny Yenni (or Johann Heinrich Jenny) to which it was previously attributed. In this view one of the coaches of the Albany and New York Line established December 28, 1918 may be seen, and at the center of the painting, the Northern Hotel, which was listed in the City Directory for 1819 at 79 Cortlandt Street. Also shown is a ferry of the New York and Jersey Steamboat Ferry Company.
