old, unmourned Station

 Since I visited the site of construction for the new Schenectady Amtrak Train Station in March of this year (at Liberty St. and Erie Blvd., abutting our “Wall Street”), things are chugging along. (see “progress at the new train station” March 23, 2018). The photos above and in the Slideshow were taken on July 12 and July 17, 2018.

I had hope that the front façade of the Station would be fully bricked when I headed back on July 17, but that may take a few more days.

One thing that did disappoint me (which will be no surprise to those familiar with my preoccupations) can best be shown by putting a photo from March 23 and one from July 12 side by side. No words needed:

follow-up (August 19, 2018): All brick-facing is apparently complete at the new train station, as you can see from the images in Tiles stacked below, which were snapped on Friday, August 17, 2018. Click on a photo for a larger version.




This photo, with all the windows installed, was taken August 22, 2018:DSCF4156
