Schenectady Train Station Opens


Most of the opening-day dignitaries were still there, when I arrived about 10:30 AM (Oct. 17) at the new Schenectady Train Station. The 10 AM Opening Ceremony was attended by Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, U.S. Rep. Paul Tonko, Mayor Gary McCarthy and many other local and state officials. See “Schenectady train station officially opens” (Daily Gazette, by Andrew Beam & Steven Cook, Oct. 17. 2018).

DSCF4249 follow-up (October 18, 2018): Yesterday, we were asked about seating in the waiting area of the new Station, and stopped in this afternoon to check it out. As expected, the folding chairs set up for yesterday’s opening ceremony were gone, and new seating installed in the public portion of the Station. Similar seating was in-place yesterday in the seating area for ticketed passengers. They seem comfortable, but I did not stay long enough for a true test drive. On the way out, I also snapped a photo of one of the sturdy new planters placed near the entrance of the Station (photo at the head of this blurb).
