The Lehigh Valley Railroad Station, located on the east end of the Court Street bridge, was constructed on steel beams which hold it directly over the Genesee River. It opened in 1906 and was last used as a railroad depot in 1950. The city purchased it in 1954, but it remained vacant for decades until it was remodeled for use as a restaurant.
