Downtown White Plains & MNRR Harlem line

So i went to Downtown White Plains,NY back in November and took a bunch of photos....I also took a MNRR Harlem video on the way back through Westchester County , The Bronx and Manhattan. I was last in White Plains back in the Summer of 08 and must say it has changed , there are less parking lots and more buildings. On warmer days the city is usually more crowded , the day i went it was abit chilly. For a City of 58,000+ it sure has alot of Diversity in the architectural and cultural dept. The City has 2 Train stations ,and busy regional airport nearby. A New East - West Railway will cut through the heart of Downtown all stations will be underground. The city has 2 Parkways and 2 Interstates , and numerous busy roads. By 2020 all the surface parking lots should be developed on with either High Rises or low rise retail / apartments. The City has Numerous parks and is planning a bike lane system... The Day was kinda gloomy and cold and empty....i will go back in the summer when its busy.

60,000 according to the last census , during the warmer months its like a mini-Manhattan but filled with Regionites , locals and College Students. The Daily working population is estimated at 250,000....
