CharlesB writes "It was one grand old building! Now, all the statuary has been removed, once elegant restrooms have been smashed. When they clean it up for a special event, they have to bring in port-a-pottys. In the last decade, as public awareness of its historical value grew, the cops have kept a closer watch on it. Before then it was a derelict's dream come true." and "I would have liked to have seen it during WW II when civilians and troops were all on move. Heavens knows how many different train lines used it. Engines of all different colors and logos. I think that the only other railway building in New York State as opulent and busy was Grand Central."

On 5/2/13 peruser writes "I remember years ago when this building was Neverett's (spelling?) grocery store. In the back of the building and on a lower level on the left was a laundromat. Across Main street from the store - to the left of where the photographer was standing - was an IGA (later a funeral home). Across the street and to the right of the photographer's position was a Presbyterian Church (where my family went)and Vestry - now I think it's a senior residence center, named in recognition and memory of the Pastor of that church."
