About this Webinar:

One of the remnants Justin Rivers, Untapped New York’s Chief Experience Officer, highlighted on his Remnants of Penn Station tour from the very beginning was the Penn Station powerhouse, or more officially, the Penn Station Service Building, located at 236-248 West 31st Street. Rivers has long called it Penn Station’s largest remnant. The granite building, which faces the south side of Madison Square Garden, once served as Penn Station’s coal-fueled power plant. We always knew the day would come when this building, built from the same granite as the lost Penn Station, would be at risk of demolition. That day has come.

This virtual event is the launch of the Coalition to Save the Penn Station Powerhouse, led by Untapped New York, the Historic Districts Council, and the City Club of New York, with additional founding partners: 29th Street Neighborhood Association, Human-scale NYC, Landmark West!, and the Victorian Society of New York. The event will feature presentations by Justin Rivers, Simeon Bankoff of the Historic Districts Council and preservationist Brad Vogel, on behalf of The City Club of New York.

Attendees will receive a link to join the webinar after completing the registration.
