Editorial Reviews

Review

“[A] treat for Penn Station aficionados and those interested in the preservation of historic landmarks, architecture, urban planning and transportation.” (Design Issues)

“[R]emarkable, informative….a valuable preservation of history and perspective that most commuters, rushing from one level or train to another, never think about.” (Examiner.com)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is an entertaining look at what Pennsylvania Station was, is, and might be in the future, through knowledgeable text and excellent pictures and drawings. A good read for those who want a detailed look at one of New York City's most famous architectural treasures, how it was lost, and how it might be reborn once again. The section on its rebirth in the Farley Post Office building was written before work was delayed on the project, but with some luck (and a lot of public and private pressure) it may come to fruition, albeit in a somewhat different form.
