Remember how they were going to make Penn Station nice, finally? They were going to spend $14 billion shuffling Madison Square Garden around and use the big, beautiful post-office to house a new train station and there would be shops and trees and offices and Penn Station would no longer embarrass us by looking like the Community Center for the Mole People? Yeah, well all that’s changed. The Sun is reporting that the plan to redevelop Penn Station “appears to be dead,” although Madison Square Garden officials will move ahead with their renovation. There weren’t many details as to why, but we expect it has something to do with the economy, which makes us really pissed at Wall Street.
