New York's Pennsylvania Station isn't much to look at now, but once it was absolutely stunning and a centerpiece of the city, as these spectacular historical photographs show. New York City, early at the latest. Pennsylvania Station was torn down in It's destruction was the spark for the historic preservation movement. Old Penn Station: William Low (great history picture book with stunning illustrations).

As New York City’s busiest commuter hub, Pennsylvania Station (more commonly known as Penn Station) serves three passenger railroad lines: Amtrak, New Jersey Transit, and the Long Island Railroad. The station also connects to the New York City subway, Penn Plaza, and Madison Square Garden, and is just a short walk from Herald Square in midtown Manhattan. The main entrance to Penn Station is located on 7th Avenue between 31st and 33rd streets, but there are also entrances via subway stations on 34th Street and 7th Avenue and on 34th Street and 8th Avenue. Penn Station is always open.

Beautifully done history of one of America's greatest engineering projects: the construction of the complex of tunnels and terminals leading to Pennsylvania Station in New York, including the building of the tunnels under the Hudson and East Rivers, the bridge across the Hell Gate from Long Island, the enormous storage and service yards and the electrification of the entire New York line. The centerpiece, of course, was Penn Station itself whose history is described in detail, including its use since the building was demolished in the 1960s. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos, maps and diagrams. 158 pages with index.

Middleton has spoiled us with quality books, and "Manhattan Gateway" is no exception.

I am not a New Yorker or an American at all.. I live in Rome, Italy and the similarities with the baths of Diocletian and Caracalla is daunting.
Middleton focuses on technical as well as architectural details and I strongly recommend this book to whoever is interested in either subject.
Also noteworthy are the captions of how the Hell's Gate Bridge was constructed and how the "new" Pennsylvania Station will look like, returning this New York terminal to some of the architectural magnificence intended by the great architects Mc Kim, Meade and White (designers of the original station).
If you like New York, especially for what was lost menially in this great city.. you will love this book.
