Michigan Central

 

On the same trip to Detroit mentioned yesterday, we went back to see how the old Michigan Central Station was holding up. I’d visited the grand old structure in it’s various forms of decay from 1983 on and I never tire of seeing her, crumbling  slowly and in a fairly dignified way.

The terminal built in 1912 has sat abandoned and eroding since 1988 when the last Amtrack train left the station.

This view is from the back on Newark St.,  looking north.
