Could It Happen?

Half a century after the demolition of the original McKim, Mead & White Penn Station, "still remembered as one of the greatest civic blunders ever committed," there is a plan to "bring McKim's Beaux-Arts masterpiece back from the ash heap of history--and solve two other major urban problems in the bargain." The April 2015 issue of Traditional Building magazine features an article that explains the visionary plan: "Building McKim's Penn Station."

NOTE: The acronym AGBANY, seen on one of the picketers' signs in the photograph, stands for "Action Group for Better Architecture in New York."

Thanks to Ian Nitschke for bringing this to our attention
