Penn Station

Penn Station Area Project: When did New Yorkers consent to the bulldozers?

New York State and its development partner, Vornado Realty, have bypassed municipal oversight in making plans for redeveloping six city blocks around Penn Station. Without appropriate community input, and despite broad opposition, the plans includes bulldozing six blocks around Penn Station.  New Yorkers will be displaced, and their homes replaced with a new density of skyscrapers which will block the sunlight from the sidewalk below. The City Club advocates for a plan which passes through the standard process of community input, giving New Yorkers an opportunity to speak up about how any changes will impact quality of life for those who call midtown home.
