The article by Yonah Freemark and Jebediah Reed explains, “Rochester’s principal train station opened in 1914, with New York Central Railroad connections to New York, Albany, and Buffalo. But sadly this grandest of stations, busy for four decades, lost most of its passengers to the new interstate system as well as the airlines. I think the best example of new rail station construction is the new Albany-Rensselaer station. I dedicated a chapter of my book on Claude Bragdon to the train station–a remarkable building.
Grand Central Station, which still exists and is still beautiful, and Pennsylvania Station, which still exists and is, well, no longer beautiful. The reason Pennsylvania Station is no longer beautiful is that the original Pennsylvania Station was torn down in 1963. Caption: In the days preceding the arrival of Amtrak, NYC 4031 and PC 4271 lead Detroit to New York City train 50, The New York Special, to a station stop at the Penn Central station in Windsor April 12, 1970. Some time last year, a notable infrastructure blog called The Infrastructurist, published a list of the top 10 greatest rail stations ever built.


In 1854, New York Central Station was constructed on Mill Street at the edge of High Falls where it served as the community’s transportation center for 30 years. The New York Central sold the building in 1959, and the Bragdon Station was demolished in 1965. That picture, which is from 1929, is below, along with one of Grand Central (?) with the same sun-beam effect. Standing shoulder to shoulder with some of the greatest examples of 20th Century American architecture is Rochester’s NY Central Station. A few of the stations on the list exist today in much more modest forms but most are now either parking lots or vacant lots. But the decline in passenger traffic emptied the station by the late 1950s, and the building was razed in 1965.
In the 1880’s the railroad tracks were elevated and the station was relocated to the east side of the Genesee River (on Central Avenue at St. Penn Station, for example, is now mainly a network of underground railroad and subway stations beneath a glass office tower and Madison Square Garden arena.


Cities like New York, Chicago, Boston, Detroit, Memphis, and Atlanta are all noted for the same horrific blunder.

This second station served New York Central’s needs for just over 20 years, when they decided to build a new station on the north side of Central Avenue, between North Clinton Avenue and Joseph Avenue. A well known New York City architect, Claude Bragdon designed the third station, referred to as Union Station or the Bragdon Station, and it opened in 1914.
