New Amtrak Exchange Station Opens Downtown Buffalo !

Assembly Majority Leader Crystal Peoples-Stokes joined Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, Mayor Byron W. Brown and State Sen. Tim Kennedy, D-Buffalo, in cutting the ribbon in front of the exit to the platform of the new downtown $28 million Amtrak train station on Exchange Street recently. During the early planning stages there was a huge push by residents and some political figures to have the new station built on the site of the old Central Terminal on the East Side. The old Exchange Street station which was built in 1952 was torn down last August.
