"It’s time to address the calamity that is Penn Station."

— Anyone who’s ever had to negotiate rush hour in New York’s busiest transit hub will surely raise a cheer for this statement, in the article, Restore A Gateway To Dignity, by New York Times architecture critic, Michael Kimmelman (who’s really doing a standup job in his newish role.) The station is a monstrosity, a fire hazard, a nightmare of frazzled commuters and colliding wheely bags… and Kimmelman has a suggestion for a new plan. It’s not entirely out of the question, though any significant change is years away. But one can dream, right? (For those in New York, Kimmelman is speaking in the D-Crit speaker series at the School of Visual Arts on February 14th.)
