More information about Rethink Penn Station NYC:
ReThink Penn Station NYC is the only organization dedicated to the reconstruction of original New York Penn Station—thoroughly modernized and updated for the 21st century as the best solution to the dilemma that is today’s catastrophe of station. Why? Because the original remains unsurpassed by any concept yet to be presented. We do not support rebuilding out of nostalgia, but for the benefits to be gained in economy, environment and yes, aesthetics—New York architectural aesthetics. We are at risk of losing our unique New York-ness. Rebuilding original New York Penn Station is an affirmation of that—it’s also a testament to the vitality and resilience of our city in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. New Yorkers have for too long suffered with a substandard, subterranean after-thought of a station buried beneath a basketball court. We can suffer no longer, and will not wait another minute. The time for action is now as our window of opportunity is closing fast due to powerful real estate interests who have the ear of the Governor. If we let them, they will sell our city right from underneath us, and will again plunder our architectural heritage. We can stop them, but we need your help!
