Abandoned power plant [edit]

Abandoned Yonkers Power Station

Between the Glenwood station and the Hudson River lies the abandoned Yonkers Power Station of the New York Central & Hudson River Railroad, a massive building which was constructed in 1907[1] to hold electrical generators to provide power for the electrification of the railroad.

In 2008 the Preservation League of New York State named the plant as one of the seven most endangered sites in the state,[2] and in 2013 the building began to be renovated into the "PowerHouse", an "arts-focused event complex with eventual plans for restaurants, a hotel and a marina." Phase One of the conversion is expected to finish in 2016 at the cost of $70 million, while Phase Two, which includes the restaurant, hotel and marina, is expected to cost $80 million, and could take up to ten years to complete.[1]
