The remnants of McKim,Mead & White’s Pennsylvania Station, Manhattan

Finished in 1910 and surviving until 1963, Penn Station was Classical Revival architecture at its most monumental and expressive, designed by the leading Classical Revival firm.

The eagle sculpture from the building survives at a commuter stop on the  Long Island Railroad.

A sad commentary on the state of railroads and civic pride in this country 50 years ago.IMG_1857.jpgIMG_1853.jpgIMG_1854.jpg
