In 1963, Penn Station was demolished, sparking a public outcry that led to the creation of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. A New York Times editorial in October of 1963 lamented “Any city gets what it admires, will pay for, and, ultimately, deserves. Even when we had Penn Station, we couldn’t afford to keep it clean. We want and deserve tin-can architecture in a tinhorn culture. And we will probably be judged not by the monuments we build but by those we have destroyed.”
