FOX 2's Jason Carr passed through Corktown Tuesday and noticed something was different.

There was a gleam in the Michigan Central Station where there used to be shadows. Lo and behold, windows were being installed in the train station.

"I'm really happy they're doing it, it's gorgeous," said one woman.

"I love it," said another passerby. "I want good things to happen here."

Workers could be seen inside the historic building, which closed in 1988, framing and installing windows.

One man called it, "a waste of time, waste of money."

There was some snarky sentiment along Michigan Avenue that no, it's not better than nothing.

One sneered that the windows look plastic, another preferred no windows at all, presumably for avant-garde authenticity, yada yada.

But on the whole, most were duly impressed.
