In partnership with The Eternal Space, a play about an untold story of the destruction of Penn Station, we are hosting a special “Demolition Anniversary” tour series of the remnants of Penn Station with Justin Rivers, playwright of The Eternal Space, timed with the 52nd anniversary of the station’s demolition.
Weaving in moments from the play, which features over 1,000 never before published photographs of the station by renown photographers Norman McGrath, Peter Moore, and Aaron Rose, along with the work of railroad aficionados Alexander Hatos, an employee of Pennsylvania Railroad and Ron Ziel, a railroad historian, the tour will also cover the past, present and future plans for the central transportation hub in New York City, accompanying a hunt for the remaining pieces of the grand McKim, Mead & White station (of which there are many!). Each guest will also receive a framable, reproduction ticket of the first commuter ride into Pennsylvania Station from 1910.
Price: $30 (+fees)
What to know: The tour is 1.5 hours long
What to bring: Comfortable walking shoes
