New York Central Station

Bas Relief, New York Central Station photo by takamobibelot via FlickrMany people may not know or remember that the main lines of the New York Central and Lackawanna railroads used to run through the streets of downtown Syracuse. Maximum speed was limited to 15 miles-per-hour. This situation was not remedied until the completion of the new New York Central Station (now Time Warner cable channel 10) on Erie Boulevard with its accompanying elevated tracks (now I-690) in 1936.
