ArtVoice has an excellent article on high speed rail in New York and how the Central Terminal could potentially fit into that picture, complete with quotes from President Michael Miller and Vice-President Mark Lewandowski.
Looking up Paderewski Drive, it is impossible not to be taken in by the massive tower that rises above the surrounding blocks of two-story homes. The Art Deco building that has loomed over the East Side since 1929 is the most recognizable structure outside of downtown, and can be seen for miles. Apart from the occasional party or art show, its cavernous, once bustling halls now lay dormant. The last train to have pass through the station departed on October 28, 1979.
For the past six years the Central Terminal Restoration Corporation has been fighting to bring life back to the building, and the building’s champions hope that a new plan for a high-speed rail line to run through Buffalo may be the breath that will help to resuscitate the sleeping giant.
