On a recent special on ABC tv celebrating the train station's 100 anniversary, I was reminded of many things I've known for a long time, and learned some things I didn't previously know - over all, a pretty admirable job and not the kind of informative reporting I associate nowadays with network television.
It is a joy to walk through this building on any day - of course, there are times when I am there to catch a train, but whenever I am in the neighborhood, if I have the time, I am happy to pay a visit just because it is so wonderful.
The renovations, although they took place quite a while ago now, are still remarkable to consider. I remember before the renovations, when so much of the station's glory was hidden from the public eye. So I appreciate what an amazing job was done, and I enjoy the benefits of that great work every time I pass through.
One of the things they added/spruced up was the downstairs food court. The food there is middle-of-the-road, but just the kind of thing I need when I am on my way somewhere and want to get a sandwich or some pizza or sushi before I leave. Sometimes I bring my own food from somewhere else and stop in and take advantage of the ample seating down there.
The station is a remnant of a time when things were done with style. Or to think of it another way, there was still a sense that even the most utilitarian place like a train station should still look good. Thank God for Jackie O and all the others who prevented this marvel from being torn down!
