Binghamton: Lackawanna Station

Lackawanna Station, 45 Lewis Street in downtown Binghamton NY opened in 1900. The station remained in used until the end of service in January 1970. The building faced demolition several times in the 1960's and 70's and was ultimately restored and converted into office space in 1986. Also on the site is a radio tower built by Guglielmo Marconi as part of an experiment to transmit signals to passenger trains in 1913. This experiment would be cut short by the First World War.
