"My Penn Station"

I was little, but I was there. It was like the grand palaces in the story books I was reading. Vast. It was vast. Went on forever. Corinthian columns that soared to the clouds. A sky of glass overhead, and so many people.

All kinds of people.

A sea of them quickly going this way, and that. Voices that thundered overhead announcing trains. Uniformed porters newspaper stands full of comic books. Rich ladies with small dogs...as in a New Yorker cartoon.

All this, and sound of trains bellow. The rumble beneath my feet my mother tugging me along. That was my Penn Station.

Stay Tuned.


  1. It's staggering - like something out of Little Nemo in Slumberland. And they destroyed this thing because why..?


  2. Those are Corinthian columns ... sorry. :)

  3. In any case they was tall as hell!

    ...especially to a six year old. :)
