I'm not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, I completely agree with him that Penn Station should have never been demolished in the first place - definitely one of the biggest mistakes the city has ever made in a planning sense IMO - and I agree that there's only so much that can be done with MSG's exterior, which, in my personal opinion, isn't very appealing though I have strong feelings for the building overall. On the other hand, the new Penn station has been a disaster since inception and there are TONS of ugly buildings that nobody is up in arms about, most notably, that hideous Verizon tower near City Hall...that thing is an eyesore.

Never should have demolished old Penn. Can't emphasize that enough. Do a quick google image search of the building if you've never seen it - it was a masterpiece in classic New York style.
