Christmas in New York

It's Christmas in New York between 1885 an 1895. This Christmas tree market stood outside the Barclay Street Station of the New York Central & Hudson Railroad. Signs on the station read "Freight Station," "Barclay Street Station," and "Pier 17". A lone shopper was brave enough to venture out into the cold following the rain.
