NY Times: Mad Men and Penn Station

The NY Times had a blog post about a recent episode of ‘Mad Men’ concerning the demolition of Penn Station to make way for Madison Square Garden, and a contemporaneous NY Times op-ed protesting the demolition.

The destruction of the original Penn Station is directly linked to the formation of the preservationist movement in New York City. There are plans to remake the current Penn Station and some of the designs evoke the original.
