Most of the Peter Pan stations on the east coast are well kept up and have decent food available.
I've never been to the Boston station but I remember the old Dayton station being located within a block or two of adult book stores (not that there's anything wrong with that ).

I wonder how long the Greyhound station in Cincinnati will be able to co-exist with the casino. I know they're there for now, but how long until the casino ponies up the cash to buy the property?

The Dayton station wasn't always on East Fifth Street, and a long time ago it had a nice cafeteria. But that was when people traveled by bus rather than air.

Sigh...I miss those days.

Downtown Dayton was a healthy business district back in those days, with Rikes, Elder Beerman, Price, etc. And remember Wilkies, the big bookstore across from the Dayton Daily News building? I'm encouraged by some of the new development near Fifth Third Field and even up along Brown Street. The city does have potential.

Sigh... We arrived here in Ohio in 2000. From all I've heard, I wish we'd arrived sooner. I'm ashamed to admit that wife & I haven't been to downtown Dayton very often. I have had the "Girlie-Sized Omelet" at Tank's Bar, though. And that's almost too big for me! Yes, it'd be nice if we could get some good retail downtown again. And I admit that I'd LOVE to be able to ride the RTA from closer than more than a mile from my house...
