Synopsis

During its brief but illustrious history, New York's Pennsylvania Station was variously described as not only the greatest railway station in the world, but also as one of the greatest building projects of the early-20th century. Its architecture fused the bombast of Beaux-Arts classicism with the latest steel-frame technology and was radical in plan. Demolished in 1966 in order to make way for a new office block and the re-siting of the Madison Square Garden sports and entertainment complex, Pennsylvania Station's destruction was irreparable - symptomatic of the post-war haste to raze what remained of many of the world's greatest cities. This was in stark contrast to its erection which was symbolic of the assured self-confidence of the turn-of-the-century United States.

Format: Taschenbuch
In 1963, a crime was perpetrated on the people of the city of New York. One of the most magnificent monuments ever to grace the streets of this city was taken from us, robbed by the forces of greed and shortsightedness; a fortress built to last for centuries destroyed, systematically dismantled after only 53 years. To anyone who's ever passed through the grim, cluttered, underground rat trap that is Penn Station today, or had to find their way around the horrendously designed Madison Square Garden that sits on top of it, the mere image of those great marble columns, the 150-foot high coffered ceiling, and most of all that magnificent steel-and-glass roof convey a tremendous sense of tragedy and loss. This book brings the lost station back to life with full-page photographs and architectural drawings, along with concise and informative text. It reminds us of what we've lost, but also provides optimism for the future now that plans to convert the adjacent Farley building, also designed by McKim, Mead and White, into a glorious new railway terminus will shortly, finally, become a reality.
Anyone interested in railroad history, turn-of-the-century neoclassical architecture, or New York City history will be mesmerized by the images of this lost palace.
