Middletown, NY - Summer, 2011 - O&W Station photos

These were all taken on July 7, 2011, in Middletown, New York.

The NYO&W Station still stands at Wickham Ave (Route 211) and Low Avenue.
Built in 1892, it last saw passenger service in 1953, and its namesake railroad,
the New York, Ontario & Western itself was abandoned in the spring of 1957.
After a major fire in 2004 (affecting mostly the western end), nothing has been done with it,
but plans are in play now for soon becoming a local medical services building.

At the far west end, looking through a window, you can see some of the heavier damage.

Just further west, the former "Adams Express" building, now put to another use.
