Pier D used to serve the New York Central Railroad’s 60th Street Yard and burned down in the early 70s. It’s full history is in the link. It’s now part of Riverside Park — it was allowed to stand as a part of Manhattan’s past.

There’s something fascinating about this structure — the shape, the way the sun shines through the angles, its history — it’s good to see NYC celebrating and trying to preserve its railroad past, even a bit.
