The 1915 New Haven Railroad station on Broad Street is in serious danger of demolition. This would be a tragic loss, especially in light of the fact that the proposed development would come in the form of a CVS store. Do we need another? The train station is just one block from the Walgreens drug store that was built on the site of the historic Leroy theater. Does history have to repeat itself in this way? The train station should be restored as a working train station, connecting Central Falls and Pawtucket with the rest of the Northeast Corridor by rail once more. That is history worth repeating.
