Penn Station Development
The planned development around Penn Station threatens to displace New Yorkers, with eight blocks surrounding the existing station would be sacrificed to bulldozers. These homes and businesses would be replaced by ten more skyscrapers, blocking out the sunlight from the sidewalk below. Empire Station Complex Plans have not been subjected to the ordinary community review and feedback process. The City Club advocates for increased transparency in permitting development of the Empire Station Complex, full opportunity for community review and updates to the plans which are responsive to community feedback.
