Bridge Street

In the heart of downtown Plattsburgh, Bridge Street crosses the Saranac River (hence the name of the street) and passes the historic downtown. Only few blocks long, it runs from the mouth of the Saranac River at Lake Champlain past buildings of a typical 19th century down town with ground floor shops and offfices surmounted usually by rental apartments. From the bridge itself,you can follow the path along the river to the MacDonough Monument and then City Hall. At the lower end of Bridge Street, you find the Plattsburgh Marina.

The largest and most impressive building on Bridge Street is the railroad station.

Plattsburgh station is an Amtrak intercity train station in Plattsburgh, New York. The station is served by one daily round trip on the Adirondack. It has one low-level side platform on the west side of the single track of the Canadian Pacific Railway Canadian Subdivision.

The Plattsburgh station was opened in 1886, previously used as a Delaware and Hudson Railway Depot,[4] and was designed by Albany architects Fuller & Wheeler,[5] in the French Provincial style. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 12, 1982 as the D & H Railroad Complex.[6] Currently Amtrak only uses a small office downstairs at track level while the above space holds law offices, a media production business, and financial investment offices.
