The photo was taken at the DL&W Jersey City facilities in 1929. The top level may be a coal unloading dock to transfer coal from rail to barge or ship.

 

I do not know the function of the second level.

Can anyone identify the structure with two or maybe three levels of track loading?  I presume the top level is for trucks.
