Still there. Well, part of it.

Boston's South Station has lost part of its east and west wings around the mid sixties ( clearly visible from the two photographs presented here ) and what was left of it was saved from demolition in the seventies, after which it was restored and renovated to what we see now. More info here.

Below is the same view from May of 2013.

Still there

South Station still looks the same, a fine old building. The elevated train line shown used to connect South Station with North Station which is about a mile away. Now 110 years later there is no such direct connection between the two, a commuter has to switch subway lines. There has been hope for years to connect the two.
