From Educational Film Catalog (1939):
"On taking a boat trip from Albany, down the Hudson River to New York, Nancy and Roger have many exciting adventures. Between seeing the sights along the shore, inspecting the different parts of
the boat, and observing the different types of boats which ply the river, their time is fully occupied. A landing at a river town, the approach to New York City, and the many wonders of its harbor are climaxed by seeing a great ocean liner assisted from its dock by tug-boats to begin its journey across the Atlantic."
