NORTH PHILADELPHIA STATION

Just one of the mysteries of train travel I suppose.
When I was in my early teens I went to New York on the train several times and since we lived in the country my parents picked me up at North Philadelphia Station since it was the closest to our farm. I remember it as being a very scary place, especially at night, as it was pretty run down, there was hardly anyone who got off the train even then, and it was very poorly lit. It was refurbished in 1999 and looks like so many places that have been fixed in time, if not fixed for living... like a ghost. It is on the National Register of Historic Places.
"This just in - someone was shot near North Philly Station just after noon today. Maybe it is just as well there is limited access to this spot."
