Description
Architect: Charles Luckman

- Today The Pennsylvania Station Occipies the bottom and underground floors of the building.

- Often called the 'tombstone' of the original Penn Station. Due to the demolition of Pennsylvania Station.

- Two Penn Plaza and Madison Square Garden are arguably one of New York's most hated buildings, due to the fact that the two massive boxy buildlings replaced the Grand Beaux-Arts Structure of the Pennsylvania Station in 1968.
