If they had made a transparent or translucent floor you could have brought light down to the platforms, but I suppose the costs of that would have been over the top.

All in all, a half-measure that only sort of solves the problem. NY still won't have that station that will knock people's socks off like a London St. Pancras, or Berlin's main station, etc, etc,. The tracks are still dark and dingy underground without light. There is no great train shed like those of Europe and no light getting down to the tracks. Sad but True. Much of the new station is reserved for corporate offices and shops. Again, a lack of focus on the actual RAIL issue. MSG needs to gtfo so that NY can fix the whole thing properly and open up the tracks to the light.


yeah, but copper glazing!

Man, Madison Square Garden is sure one ugly ass building. Wish they would reconstruct Penn Station.

There's not enough lipstick in the world to put on that pig(MSG)… I seriously hope they won't drop the ball and give an extension that would essentially keep it there until midcentury. The Dolans may be powerful, but there could be so much done to improve the transit/pedestrian experience by moving MSG out of there. We won't get the old Penn Station back( though some of that prestige and grandeur will be restored by the Moynihan Train Hall across the street) but we can finally try to get things right.

what's a shame about msg is as hideous as it is on the outside is as nice as it is inside. and the sound is just spectacular for an arena. its probably the very best big arena for concerts sound-wise.

of course that's not good enough though. tear that sh*t down. bring back light to our embarrassing rat maze basement. if paris can do it with les halles, which once was a twin of this penn station, it can be done!
