Penn Palimpsest: History Becomes the Future
In 2016, The New York Times asked Vishaan Chakrabarti and his firm Practice for Architecture and Urbanism (PAU) to develop a proposal for the redevelopment of Penn Station that would address issues not resolved by current initiatives to redevelop the Farley Post Office. Most notably, the Farley plans do not solve the problem that a very large proportion of daily users of the station cannot use a redeveloped Farley building because of the position of Long Island Railroad and New Jersey Transit platforms, which are largely located between Seventh and Eighth avenues and cannot be moved. On February 23, Vishaan Chakrabarti will present the proposal in a program co-sponsored by The Architectural League and the Regional Plan Association.
