New Schenectady Amtrak Station Unveiled [PHOTO]

The Amtrak station in Schenectady has been an eyesore and not very functional for many years. Since the downtown area has started to thrive again and the Rivers Casino has opened, it is nice to see that a plan is in the works to make it a true train station.

I have to admit that I think the plans for the Amtrak station in Schenectady look beautiful. Governor Cuomo unveiled the plans in a press conference at Proctor’s Theater on Tuesday. He stated that the overhaul was way overdue but that he had pledged state funding to rebuild the station.

I always felt that the Schenectady train station was an embarrassment and was glad to know that most of the area leaders felt the same. I think Schenectady has come a long way in becoming a downtown destination with much to offer. It will be great to have an Amtrak station that can bring people in not only to the Rivers Casino, but also to all that the Electric City has to offer.

The new Amtrak station is scheduled to be completed by November of 2018.
