    Indeed. And, these sentiments are echoed exactly in a post I put up a few moments ago in a different topic. Our age calls out for the great men of the past who took risks and built New York. Sadly,...

    I was at Penn Station this past weekend...the place is truly miserable. Dimly lit, tacky, dirty, you name it. New York deserves better. The only highlight of my visit was seeing remnants of the...

    2 Penn is a waste of valuable airspace. It's such a low-rise where there ought to be something in the 1200' range on the site. Perhaps the market didn't justify a whopper here back in 1964, but it...

    Zoning, schmoning. NY should let the free market rule, and scrap all building height restrictions.

    The U.S. is NOT "ugly." Take a mean-spirited swipe at somebody else's girlfriend, if you must. Or better, stick to the architecture as this thread is alleged to concern.

    Philip Johnson stepped out of the box with his AT&T building back in the 70s. Who's to say an architect today can't also take a chance, and draw upon historical styles for inspiration? Beaux-arts...

    I vote for #4, but with a few suggested changes:

    1. Scrap the glass. Substitute limestone.

    2. Add 50 stories to each tower.

    3. Keep the deco-like setbacks.

    The new Penn Station should make the most out of the existing architecture. I vote for Beaux-arts on steroids, and forget all that trendy and odd glasswork. The station plans as originally...
