Pennsylvania Station was designed by the architectural firm of McKim, Mead & White and completed in 1911. The Beaux Arts-style train station occupied two full City blocks from 31st to 33rd streets between Seventh and Eighth avenues, and was demolished in 1963 to make way for Madison Square Garden and an underground commuter railroad station. On February 11th The Museum of the City of New York is hosting and exclusive preview of PBS’s documentary “The Rise and Fall of Penn Station”.
