Must've Lost Their Train of Thought
andrewjlederer.com points out that the photos at the Atlantic Terminal Mall are not what they seem:
However, I noticed - as I have before - that the vintage train photos they have in some of their windows are of New York Central trains, while the LIRR's affiliation was with the Pennsylvania Railroad (its one-time owner) and Penn Station.
The pictures are wrong. They're perfunctory; the result of the kind of ignorance that comes from not caring.
Does it matter? Of itself, probably not. But it represents lapses of social memory that really are troubling.
Would Caring Bruce Ratner really make this mistake?
