Kickstarter Project Aims To Bring Pennsylvania Station Back... As A Play

September 29th - via: gothamist.com
Sadly, this Kickstarter project can't bring the old, beautiful Penn Station back, but it will briefly allow us to revisit it, in play form. "The Eternal Space" will use old photos, many which you've never laid eyes on, "to tell the story of a friendship forged during the demolition of New York's Pennsylvania Station." Most of the photos included in the play were taken by Norman McGrath, and if you pledge $75, you'll get one of his never-before-seen 8 1/2" by 11" photos. (Read More)

Architectural competitions seek to return the station to its glory, while better serving the population. And now, a play called The Eternal Space is in the works about an untold story from the demolition. (Read More)
