Re: Why NY Penn Station still sucks

Enh, I think this article is suffering from motivated reasoning. The problem is that the improvements created by development are far less transformational than they used to be. The original Penn Station project replaced a time consuming ferry ride from Jersey City or Long Island City. The new Penn Station project will make the ambiance a bit nicer. Even if moving MSG could be accomplished, where is there another transit accessible location in Manhattan it could be rebuilt?

Truth is that the City can build new things. Hudson Yards, the convention centre, new Yankee and Mets stadiums, the Barclays center, second ave subway and East Side Access are all examples. Yes they cost more because it's not cool to kick certain interest groups to the curb, but they are still getting built.
