Of course the Port of New York is a misnomer. It's really the Port Authority. Its stated purpose is to Keep the Region Moving. When you think of a port, you think of boats and ships. Yes, it includes the terminals and ports. The reality is that it also handles anything critical to the transportation network between New York and New Jersey in the areas surrounding NYC. This includes the airports of LaGuardia, JFK, Newark and Teterboro. The PATH rail transit system, the World Trade Center, the 51st Street Rail Yard, and all kinds of associated services. The George Washington Bridge, along with the Lincoln and Holland Tunnels, the three bridges from Staten Island to New Jersey and the famous Manhattan Bus Terminal are all maintained by the Port Authority.
