Today’s Top 5

Damn

Thats a beautifully restored picture of the concourse..

The picture taken of the stairs existing today is track 5 and 6. I just was there. It felt so good to touch it. And it's very heavy in person and thick too

Shorpy site... Please restore the picture of the main waiting room. You don't have that one up yet. It is the most beautiful waiting hall ever.

Interesting

Looks like the same photo but with the duckboards edited out

Rivets

I love how they took the technology of the times and made it into an art form.

Staircases

I wasn't aware they 'allowed' any staircases to remain; where are the originals- in the station?

[This photo of one and its location can be found on this page. - tterrace]

"Circa" 1910

Has to be very close! Station is pristine clean, and there are duckboards across the tracks. Since the old Penn Station was completed in 1910, this photo looks like very soon before opening.

<sigh>

We're looking at a crime scene.

Gone, but not forgotten.

It's amazing that they allowed some of the staircases to remain; every time I'm there, the gleaming/greening bronze and brass reminds me of what was.
