Central Station

These photographs were taken for a New York Times story about the Ford Motor Company plan to transform the former train station into a transportation and innovation district, and how it could be central to Detroit's resurgence.

Went on a guided tour with the assistant project manager around the station and to another adjacent building( former book depository connected to the train station via tunnel) that Ford also bought. Wanted to get some frames of the crews working, but alas, the tour was scheduled during the crews lunch break( for safety?).
