Alex:
Does anyone know what this concrete structure is?

Alps:
It's right next to the train station (http://www.alpsroads.net/roads/ny/rochester/lvrr.jpg) so my guess is the tracks came in on that structure.

mightyace:
To me, it looks like the tracks stub-ended underneath and the concrete structure was for pickup and deliveries of passengers including via taxi and trucks with express freight.

But, without an old photo to go by, I can't say whether either Alps or myself is right.

That's from an old postcard - appears that the left side (where your concrete structure is) was a building foundation and trains came in somewhere else.  A little hard to tell, though.

Alex:
Is New York similar to Vermont where incorporated villages and cities maintain their own signage? I am wondering if this may explain the difference in these types of state shields:

If not, are the differences in shield styles a contractor, issue, a district issue, or something else?
