Remarks & Notes 
Imagine the number of people that have walked through this train station. Built in 1925, it is the third busies rail station in the United States. The station serves around 120,000 passengers every weekday. Passengers form a line for the next Amtrak train to arrive including a small group of Mennonites. The light flooding in from the skylights is possible due to a restoration in 1991. Prior to that, they were still blacked out from WWII in an effort to conceal the building at night.
