The 1961 fire that totally destroyed the New York Central rail and marine
facilities sealed the fate of the site.  It was hard to believe that the site was
a key facility for the defense of the nation less than ten years before during
the Korean War.

Makes one wonder what could have been. This could have been home to a great Rail/Marine museum.
