Description
The New York Central System by Michael Leavy

Here is a 128 page paper bound “lite” history of Buffalo as a rail hub.  During the 1860’s and 70’s, Buffalo was considered the second largest railroad hub in the Unites States.  Given its location, it saw the effects of westward expansion as the country grew and greatly benefited as a result. Buffalo rapidly became a city of importance as the stockyards, grain, steel, automotive, and other industries began to establish themselves in the area.  Drawn by vast amounts of fresh water, inexpensive hydropower, and good railroads, the Buffalo region grew -- and with it, the railroads expanded. Buffalo earned the name of the Queen City as it became the second-largest city in the state of New York, and it was the railroad that brought the city to prominence.

Author Bio:  Stephen G. Myers grew up along the tracks and developed a love that turned into a career as a conductor at Buffalo's Frontier Yard.  Michael J. Connor's father was a manager for the Erie Railroad, and Michael followed in his father's footsteps to be a railroad man.  Today he is president of the Erie Lackawanna Historical Society.  Both authors drew from their personal photograph collections and sought out local historians and societies to compile vintage the images of Buffalo’s Railroads. 

Be aware that the accuracy of some of Arcadia’s home-spun histories is sometimes questionable. Hence, your NYCSHS directors would be interested in reviews by knowledgeable members. Published by Arcadia Publishing, this softcover retails for $22, with NYCSHS members paying only $17.60. Shipping is extra and Ohio residents must add 8% Ohio sales tax.
