  • Penn Station: Still Terrible But Hope is on the Horizon By Olivia Smedley | October 03, 2013

    Every day, around 600,000 commuters flow in and out of Penn Station, and boy do they hate it. Why is it so difficult to get in, around, and through Penn during peak hours (and even times in between)? It could be because the current station was built to accommodate only a third of the hundreds of thousands that arrive each morning. Any commuter knows how dismal, depressing, and downright annoying it is to simply be in the western world’s largest transportation hub, and for almost 20 years the city has been planning on its expansion.

  • The Battle Over Penn Station’s New Layout Has Started By Clemence Fontaine | June 05, 2013

    The case for moving the world’s most famous arena is not on the agenda yet. The City Planning Commission has given Madison Square Garden fifteen more years to prepare for its eventual relocating. Thus, Penn Station can start laying out its future extension. Indeed, unrealistic projects have already seen the light and the Municipal Art Society has launched a competition over Penn Station’s new design. Four of the city’s top architects stand out and have begun the fight over who is going to be granted the honor of redesigning New York’s main hub.

  • The Case for Moving Madison Square Garden By Aby Thomas | May 13, 2013

    On May 22, the Department of City Planning is going to vote on whether Madison Square Garden, one of New York City’s most iconic structures, should be given only 15 more years to operate from its current location over Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan. If the city’s commissioners give the green signal to this proposal, then that means that the “World’s Most Famous Arena” will probably soon have to find a new location to call as its home in the city.

  • Taking the Gloves Off: MSG and Penn Station By Thomas Faddegon | April 24, 2013

    Penn Station is about to burst at the rafters. It likely would have done so already, were it not for a certain 19,000-seat stadium sitting squarely on its head. Manhattan’s entire subway system is notorious for packed subway cars at rush hour, and commuters have learned to suspend any notion of personal space for the duration of their ride. Nevertheless, overcrowding at the famous NYC station has reached critical levels.

  • Proposed Queens MLS Stadium Meets Opposition By Tim Sheehan | February 28, 2013

    While the “first look” photos of the proposed Queens Major League Soccer stadium might not be official, MLS wants a team playing in New York City by 2016. Early renderings of the stadium by SHoP Architects were released to the internet and caused a stir on the blogosphere, but MLS reports that the drawings do not represent what the stadium will look like. Regardless, the project appears to have kicked off, which could very well result in another new stadium in the City.

  • The 12.12.12 Concert for Sandy Relief Rocks Out Tonight By Aby Thomas | December 12, 2012

    Today is 12-12-12 on the Gregorian calendar—a momentous date owing to the fact that the next time such an alignment of numbers will occur will be in the next century, that is, on January 1, 3001 (1-1-1). Given the memorable nature of the date, it is therefore fitting that we are going to see a one-of-a-kind concert play today at New York City’s famous Madison Square Garden, featuring A-list performers like Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Paul McCartney, Alicia Keys, Bon Jovi and more, all coming together on one magnificent stage.

  • Penn Station Moves Forward in Renovation By Stephanie Spencer | July 03, 2012

    With daily commuters heavily crowding the dimly lit basement walls, Penn Station and Garment District residents have the Metropolitan Transit Authority to thank for its future. The transit authority announced on July 1st that Aecom, a Los Angeles based construction firm, will devise a renovation plan that will hopefully improve Manhattan apartment owner and commuters’ overall experience. Once the firm evaluates the station, deciding which essentials to focus on, responsibly will be divided between the Long Island Railroad, New Jersey Transit, and Amtrak. The entitled plan, Penn Station Vision, will not be paid for by Moynihan Station as previously believed, and instead will be funded by the MTA’s next five-year capital plan, taking effect in 2015. Lack of federal funds, however, may possibly hinder the MTA’s plans for construction in the future.
