United States Navy Airships float over the Lower Manhattan skyline.  The view of this era presents a far different picture than the one of today.  Most of the piers that you see here are gone now.  Even the shape of Manhattan has changed, with the western shore of the island being extended out into the Hudson River with the landfill from the excavation of the World Trade Center.
