ReThinkPennStationNYC presents a program on new ideas for Penn Station featuring Vishaan Chakrabarti, PAU, Alexandros Washburn, Grand Penn Community Alliance, Richard Cameron, Atelier and Co. and ReThinkNYC, and Lorraine B. Diehl, author of The Late, Great Pennsylvania Station.
The original Pennsylvania Station and associated Hudson and East River tunnels were critically important to New York becoming “the greatest city on earth.” Fixing the site is critically important to it remaining so. As every New Yorker knows, the current station — trapped in the basement of a hockey rink — is an egregious mess and the current track configuration no longer serves the kind of city we’ve become — less a city than a region.
Join them as they discuss their plans, and present visual renderings with the focus on giving New Yorkers and the traveling public a great, above-ground station. Come. Listen. Ask questions. Believe... in New York, again.
