The New York Central Belt Line is a 15-mile rail route circling Buffalo and connecting its prominent industrial loft clusters.
The Belt Line was completed by the New York Central Railroad in 1883, with segments dating back to 1836. The line forms a continuous loop through Buffalo’s downtown as well as the city’s prominent industrial loft clusters it helped create, including the Larkin District, Central Terminal, Fougeron Center, Northland/Chelsea, Highland Park, Great Arrow, Black Rock Yards and the Niagara Industrial Corridor.
The Belt Line was both a freight and commuter rail line, with 19 commuter stations handling passengers from 1883 until the end of World War I. A trip cost a nickel with about 26 trains running per day.
The Belt Line continues to serve as a freight line today.
