June 5, 1943: The Federal Statutory Court upheld the Interstate Commerce Commission’s order permitting the New York Central to abandon the Getty Square branch of the Putnam Division. The only recourse left to the City of Yonkers, the Public Service Commission, the Committee of South Yonkers Commuters and the people of Yonkers in their fight to save the branch was to appeal to the US Supreme Court.
