Nicely preserved train station. Neighborhood is not the best so if you wander away from the station you will most likely be hit up by panhandlers and may see some drug deals. You are relatively safe especially during the day and there are lots of good restaurants fairly close. Food selection at the station not the greatest. Place right next... 更多
After walking 7 blocks in the foot of snow, the station was a welcome destination.

Sadly this is one of the worst places in the city to go through as it never is free of addicts no matter what time of day. It is great to have a central location for the trains and buses out of town and the facilities are very nice and served by public transportation to get to and from the... 更多
