Inside the Bus Station

Inside the Bus Station.

When our 'New' bus station was being built I did not like what I saw... but now it's up and running I really like it. It seems much more friendly in there, and so much warmer and dryer than those old smelly shelters. The other thing about it is that it is clean. It used to be a filthy place around here and was visited nightly by rats.
I hope this bus station remains long and carries on being the place it is now.

yes it does look clean--Penn Station in NYC used to be slightly messy (homeless folk and con artists sitting on benches) but after 9/11 with more security, the benches were removed and the place is crawling with cops and soldiers --and spotless. you have to go through security to be allowed to sit in a large clean waiting room. But it is an Amtrak and LIRR station--Port Authority is our bus station--same thing though--no more loiterers, spic and span, and lots of soldiers. Before it was rare to see a cop on the street in NYC--they stayed in cars and never seemed to drive in midtown. Now there are clusters of them everywhere. The whole city is cleaner--no one is going to litter in front of a cop.
