We have a few special surprises in store for our special demolition anniversary tour of the Remnants of Penn Station. In the year that we have hosted this popular tour, we keep uncovering more and more remnants, and you’ll find out the reason for that if you join us this Sunday at 2pm. One of the latest finds is an old track gate, from which bells used to be hung. This remnant of the original Pennsylvania Station has never been reported in previous coverage and we will be showing guests an example still extant this weekend, along with the many other remnants already on the tour. In addition, guests for the Sunday tour will receive a limited edition reproduction of the first ticket for the Long Island Railroad coming into Penn Station.
Also, until midnight 10/22 get a 10% discount on the tour using the coupon code EAGLES. Ticket options include tour only ($30 before discount) or tour + 20% discounted ticket to the play The Eternal Space opening next month ($75 before discount).
The Untapped Cities tour of the remnants of Penn Station is led by Justin Rivers playwright of The Eternal Space. Weaving in never before published photographs from the play, the tour will also cover the past, present and future plans for the transportation hub, accompanying a hunt for the remaining pieces of the grand McKim, Mead & White station.
