There's still high-quality iron ore
under the mountains of northern New Jersey and southern New
York: there's a book about it called "Vanishing
Iron Works of the Ramapos". A little railroad called
the Sterling Mountain RR came down to meet the Erie at
Sterlington, NY (between Suffern and Harriman). Extraction
became un-economic in the 20th century because (1) the ore
is deep underground and must be shaft-mined, and (2) the
land is more valuable as suburbs. Al Brown,
