Civic, Business and Elected Leaders Announce Principles for Moynihan Station

Tomorrow morning at 10:30 a.m., the Municipal Art Society will be joining elected officials, the Friends of Moynihan Station, labor associations, and urban planning and preservation groups, to announce principles for the design and construction of Moynihan Station East and West. The public is welcome to join us on the steps.

The group will symbolically “nail the principles to the door” by nailing them to a freestanding column. The principles – announced just prior to the public hearing for the project – contain planning, design and preservation principles that the civic and business communities believe the City, State and transit agencies should follow as they oversee the project with the real estate developers and Madison Square Garden.

Earlier this month, the New York Times urged developers to build “a station worthy of New York” and to ensure that the Farley building becomes a truly public space, not merely the passageway for people going to events at the Garden.” We couldn’t agree more.
