The crap they built where the beautiful old train stations were

Jebediah sez, "This is a tour of impressive American train stations that were demolished in recent decades — with photos of the original buildings are "after" pictures showing what's at the various sites today. It's a strange contrast in most cases between the grandeur of the train station and shabby replacement structure. In some cases it's just a parking lot.

The most famous example, of course, is NYC's old Penn Station. But there are many other notable cases, including Memphis's amazing station that was replaced with a bunker of a postal facility surrounded by barbed wire."
