“Michigan Central Station (also known as Michigan Central Depot or MCS), built in mid-1912 through 1913 for the Michigan Central Railroad, was Detroit, Michigan’s passenger rail depot from its opening in 1913 after the previous Michigan Central Station burned, until the cessation of Amtrak service on January 6, 1988. At the time of its construction, it was the tallest rail station in the world.” (Wikipedia) It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975 and restoration projects are currently underway.

Someone needs to contact National Herritage and turn it into a Gallery or something. What a waste of a spectacular piece of Architecture.
