These two pieces of terra cotta ornamentation come from the post office across Penn Station, now known as Moynihan Station (previously the James A. Farley Post Office). Moynihan Station will be the future home of Amtrak and the post office is still operational there, with an overlooked Museum of Postal History as well as much unused space, repurposed for special events like fashion shows and art installations.
