New York Times November 2, 1902.
Here we have a new Grand Union Station proposed in 1902 for the Bronx
between 138th Street, 3rd Avenue, the Harlem River and Park Ave (extended
into the Bronx). To connect the new planned east side subway, the Union
Railway streetcars in the Bronx, the Metropolitan Railway Madison Ave. line,
2nd and 3rd Street Els, the New Haven and Port Chester Railroads, the Harlem
River terminal, and the NY Central. It also proposed that linking the Harlem
River Station would give a loop line to the New Haven, to relieve congestion
on the Park Ave tunnel in Manhattan. . It also says it is a short distance
from the ferry to Queens and the projected (Hell's Gate) bridge, "as well as
Port Morris" It equates this area to the Bronx as City hall is to Manhattan,
where all lines converge.
Maybe the closest that came to this was when the Westchester and Boston came
down near here later in the decade.
