Station Exploration

Philadelphia's 30th Street Station is a sight


Last year I visited Philadelphia for a mini vacation and was transported to another time when I arrived at 30th Street Station via Amtrak's Keystone Corridor. The station's resemblance to Grand Central Terminal in New York City was astonishing. The towering pillars that seem to touch the railroad heavens are a sight. Designed in the 1930s by Graham, Anderson, Probst, and White, this station is a true masterpiece. Today it serves as a busy hub for Amtrak's Northeast Corridor, Keystone, and Acela trains, as well as SEPTA lines and NJ Transit's Atlantic City Line, connecting travelers to destinations across the East Coast.Unlike Moynihan Train Hall in Penn Station, New York, 30th Street Station seamlessly blends history with modern functionality, ensuring an unforgettable experience for all travelers.
