Moynihan Station: What Needs to Happen Next
February 27th, 2008, 3:46 pm
Tuesday, May 13, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m., at the Municipal Art Society The construction of Moynihan Station is the single most critical civic project planned for New York City this decade. Penn Station, this country’s busiest transportation center, is overcapacity and inefficient. A modern, state-of-the-art train station would revitalize the surrounding district and be the most effective catalyst for development on the Far West Side of Manhattan. What will it take to fully realize Senator Moynihan’s vision? Panelists include: Kent Barwick, president, Municipal Art Society; Richard Ravitch, principal, Ravitch Rice & Company LLC; Richard L. Brodsky, assemblyman, New York State Assembly; Anna Hayes Levin, chair, Community Board 4; and Daniel A. Biederman, president, 34th Street Partnership. Moderator: Charles Bagli, reporter, The New York Times. $15, $12 MAS members. Advance reservations are no longer being taken, but space is still available. Please show-up and pay at the door.
