  1. chase tyler says:

    There was no hope for Iola. I thought it was creepy, having the abandoned hospital among the ones still in use.

  2. Charles says:

    My thought Joel is conversations like this and websites like this are a step in the right direction.

    I also think supply and demand is in affect and while we care, most of these decisions are being based on market analysis and the majority of people don’t really care about this stuff.

    That is why I am a fan of comprehensive plans that forecast the direction we want to head as a community versus just responding to ever new situation.

    Thanks .

  3. Brendan Bulson says:

    Not that we need more housing but use Danvers, Mass. as an example of how to repurpose a hospital campus. The buildings may not all be there but the main buildings walls are still there. Now it is high end apartments.

  4. Colleen C. says:

    Does anyone have further info about image #2?

    I’m wondering if you could point me in any directions to discover photos or more info regarding the Charlotte & Summerville rail stations (are there such a thing?) my ancestors were affiliates with:

    Casto Pasquale “Charles” Gagliardi
    Birth 21 MAY 1877 • Italy
    Death 07 MAY 1920 • Irondequoit

    per 1920 census records, he was a “station boss” and his son, Nicolas, was a machinist at a Summerville rail station.

    Address on 1920 census records indicated that he lived at 13 St. Paul St in Summerville. (Main office for RW&O Ontario Secondary from Irondequoit or Charlotte? idk)

    1917 WW draft registration states Pasquale was Section Foreman of Rome Watertown RR Station on Lake Ave for NY Central RR, (Charlotte Station which recently housed a plumbing business?) lived in house on RR property in Irondequoit, and had PO address of Charlotte RR Station. (I assume this was the RW&O: Rome, Watertown and Ogdensburg Railroad, commonly known as The Hojack Line) The “The Story of the Rome Watertown and Ogdensburg Railroad” by Edward Hungerford didn’t have specifics about a “Charlotte RR Station”

    Thanks!
