BUFFALO, NY – It is one restoration project that many hold near and dear. However, Buffalo's landmark art deco former train station, which hovers over the economically depressed east side of the city, is also among the most challenging.
Hopes of restoring Central Terminal go back further than hopes of the Buffalo Bills returning to the playoffs, and the odds of success seem much longer.
"When I got on the board, the former president warned me that this project will eat you up and spit you out," said Paul Lang, an architect who is entering his seventh year on the Central Terminal Restoration Corp, which has owned the building since 1997.
According to Lang, the workload for board members has increased since the Executive Director hired to oversee the operation of the terminal of the left in August along with five board members.
