PC: East Syracuse Station

What a shame!  As a boy I used to sneak off from home (then Penfield, New
York -- just outside Rochester) on Saturdays and ride from Rochester to
Syracuse and back for the day.  I'd tell my parents I was going downtown --
they'd have thought the train ticket a complete waste of money.  The East
Syracuse station was no great shakes architecturally, but it's full of
memories for me.  And if there's one thing we DON'T need, it's another
shopping mall!

BTW -- The station dates from New York Central days; it was opened after the
main station in downtown Syracuse was closed.
