As We See It: Buffalo Exchange Street Station

As We See It: Buffalo Exchange Street Station

Buffalo is many things to many people, and those people often have different perspectives based on their own experiences. 

"As We See It," a new series by The Buffalo News photography staff, will take a fresh look at local landmarks with each of our photographers offering his or her unique perspective.

Our first "As We See It" collection focused on the Erie Basin Marina observation tower.

Next up: Amtrak's Buffalo Exchange Street Station.

The current depot opened to rail customers on November 8, 2020, with the departure of the eastbound Maple Leaf. The building was designed and built through a nearly $28 million contract awarded by the New York State Department of Transportation in late 2018. The modern facility was designed by Sowinski Sullivan Architects and is twice the size of its predecessor that stood on the same site.

Built of rich red brick with a buff-colored ashlar cast stone used for the base and cornice, the 4,800 square foot depot features a two-story pavilion with a seamed metal roof. The pavilion houses the passenger waiting room, ticket office and restrooms.
