- I'm not sure if this was 7th Street or 7th Avenue. Sixth was an avenue, 8th, a street.
- Since we don't model this far north on our downtown scene, I simply haven't been paying the prototype much attention.
Hoosick St. to Hutton
Hutton St. to Jacob
- The tracks crossed the street diagonally about half-way down the block. This is near where the tracks crossed under Hoosick.
Fulton St. to Broadway
- The edge of our layout is along the alley on the far side of the powerhouse and RR YMCA. So anything east of that would be in the aisle.
- The view from the depot looking due east, with a freshly shopped NYC Pacific. Apparently, as part of the 1909 Hudson-Fulton Celebration (100th anniversary of Fulton's first steamboat trip, 300th anniversary of Henry Hudson's trip up his namesake river), the New York Central parked one of their state-of-the-art locos on the furthest track from the depot.

- To the south of the collar company was a continuous block of rowhouses.
State to Congress
- There was a school here, still standing but now occupied by county offices such as Motor Vehicles.
