Designed by McKim, Mead & White and completed in 1910.

Torn down in the 1960\’s along with the Singer Building and the Astor. Outrage over its loss sparked legislation that now preserves historic landmarks in NYC.

    I think my favorite NYC landmark is the Trinity Church downtown Manhattan, Broadway I think.

    Don’t remember being to the Trinity Church. I’ll have to remember to pass by there the next time I’m out there. But I’ve always loved the Penn Station Architecture. Just so beautiful.

    Hard to miss, but beautiful.
    I love the doors. They’re carved panels on them, top to bottom.
