Summary:
During its brief but illustrious history, New York's Pennsylvania Station was described as not only the greatest railway station in the world, but also as one of the greatest building projects of the early twentieth century. The station was unique in the radical nature in which it was planned; its architecture fused the bombast of Beaux-Arts classicism with the latest steel-frame technology.

Abstract:

During its brief but illustrious history, New York's Pennsylvania Station was described as not only the greatest railway station in the world, but also as one of the greatest building projects of the early twentieth century. The station was unique in the radical nature in which it was planned; its architecture fused the bombast of Beaux-Arts classicism with the latest steel-frame technology.

Pennsylvania Station was tragically demolished between 1963 and 1966 in order to make way for a new office block and the resiting of the Madison Square Garden sports and entertainment complex. This book captures the building's former magnificence, and features beautiful archive photographs reproduced in duotone.
