Architecture in Decay

Pawtucket-Central Falls Train Station is an abandoned railroad station located in the cities of Pawtucket and Central Falls. The station was originally built in 1915-16 by the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad as a replacement for two separate stations. The station was served by New Haven Railroad trains and then the MBTA until 1981. The structure was barely saved from demolition when a CVS was constructed in front of the station.  The glass and iron canopies were removed and the structure is in disrepair with graffiti and missing details. From photos, the interior was a grand vaulted hall with a large decorative skylight typical of the era. Lamy Fountain Pen with Noodler’s Ink on the last page of a Canson Sketchbook
