    Does not look good. Probably the tip of the iceburg. Can only imagine what the infrastructure looks like on the NH line. Quick but very costly storm.

    It’s a terminal, not a station. :P

    I was half considering going to GCT yesterday, but they probably wouldn’t have let me in anyway.

    It’s really quite good that they are posting pictures. I’m sure there would be people that didn’t believe them otherwise.

      Considering that one of the captions on the picture posted on flickr was about police “securing” the building, my thought is no. Run ins with the cops are not high on my list of things to do.

    Hopefully people who would otherwise have been impatient with the return to normal service will appreciate how much destruction there was when they see pictures like these. I wish they would post pictures of damage on LIRR; I am sure with flooding, on the south shore in particular, it’s a mess, even if it doesn’t compare to what MNRR sustained.

      There are a few photos of the LIRR, but not as many as the subway or Metro-North. Knowing people though, they’ll still be pretty pissed if service doesn’t get restored immediately. Everyone pretty much hates the MTA either way. The pictures do go quite a long way though, for any of the riders that actually are capable of rational thought.

        Hewlett.com posted some pics of LIPA crews repairing the electrical poles along the platforms of Hewlett LIRR Station. I hope the old station house survived, because since that’s the only surviving former South Side Rail Road of Long Island depot, it really should be added to the National Register of Historic Places.

  4. I was once a student at the Linden Hill School,and home visits were just not that great,so on sunday nights,I would take the 8:00 pm train from Grand Central and 1 hour later would be transported back to the most wonderful school,on God’s green earth,with the greatest friends that God ever created.I would ride with my friends,till we reached the low-level platforms at Hawthorne,in Westchester County,in those days the upper harlem line was not electrified,and either RDC cars would be used or the dual mode FL-9 locomotives,would take the train to Brewster,NY,and the students would be met by 2 station wagons,from the school,what wonderful days,I really miss them.God bless the class of 1970,my true treasures.
