Documentary Explores the Destruction of the Original Penn Station

14 February, 2014


A new documentary explores the significance of the destruction of the original Pennsylvania Station in New York, and it's role in the historic preservation movement in America.

"The Rise and Fall of Penn Station," airing Tuesday, February 18 as part of the American Experience series on PBS, takes a look at the enormous engineering feat in the early 20th century, in which tunnels were constructed under the Hudson and East River, connecting the railroad system to the Beaux Arts transportation hub, widely regarded as an architectural wonder. In 1963 the building was destroyed to construct Madison Square Garden.
