Excellent. Penn Station is a disgrace.


#25

Really a travesty. Think about it every time I go through there. One of the worst parts is MSG is a piece of garbage too. That arena needs to be bulldozed


#26

Yup. I was in there two weeks ago I just kept wondering how could it be like this for so long. :joy:

Wow, that’s a lot of work in the past year. And for an infrastructure project! Can’t wait to walk inside that atrium space.

Me as an NJ Transit commuter looking at Moynihan Hall from my shitty MSG basement

My two favorite things: nyc architecture and the subway/rail system.

From the latest Yimby article on OMW. Seems like the skylights are more than halfway complete.

The Farley Post Office is such a wonderful example of Beaux-Arts architecture. The renderings make it look like SOM is incorporating glass vaults while preserving the monumental facade in a way that reminds me of the Grand Palais in Paris, a classic example of the Beaux-Arts school. I hope they do in fact preserve as much of the external facade as possible.

The company doing the restoration:

Looks like they have good experience doing this stuff. They also worked on Central Park’s Belvedere Castle, parts of the Queensboro Bridge, among other projects.
