Secaucus junction (otherwise known as Frank R. Latenburg station) is a New Jersey transit station which lets commuters from New York transfer to trains going to or from Hoboken terminal. In a life after people, how long will this train station last?
1 day after people, New York's power grid fails, making the station go dark. But the station is still safe.... At least for now.
10 years after people, the platforms and rails of pascack, main & Bergen county line are nearly unrecognizable. They have been covered in a series of crabgrass, and the walls of the station are most likely to be covered in vines.
50 years after people, the 5-decade neglect has now left secaucus station looking like a greenhouse. Plants have overgrown through the station's upper platform and the signs on the platform are corroding.
75 years after people, the cattails figure inside the building is what may be a sign of the station's great collapse. In the time of humans, secaucus swamp was the most recognizable swamp near New York and especially, secaucus junction station. Many rainstorms flooded this swamp, especially hurricane sandy. Now, after 7 and a half decades of neglect, a level 5 rainstorm, hits secaucus, flooding it's swamp. The walls of the station crack, supports of the glass roof crumbling down too. The cattails collapses, and other bits of the station are blown away. Secaucus junction is gone, but the rails and the walls of the platforms for the pascack, main & Bergen county line have survived. They might remain 50 more years after people.
