Glenwood Power Station was constructed on the side of the Hudson River between 1904 and 1906 solely to satisfy the need for electrical rail power during New York Central and Hudson River Railroad's switch from steam. To design the plant, the city hired architectural firm Reed and Stem to design its railroad's power house. Reed and Stem would later collaborate with architects Warren and Wetmore to Design Grand Central Station, the terminus of the railroad their plant powered. In 1936, when the electrical utilities could finally sufficiently supply the railroads, the city sold the plant to power consortium Con-Edison, which operated it until 1963 when newer, more efficient plants emerged.

I'd been meaning to get here for a while, visited the day before my birthday. MTA is the best fuckin transit system in the world and it got us right to the front door of our target
