Is Atlantic Yards "this generation's Penn Station"? The meme may be spreading

From Metropolis's P/O/V blog:
New York has made sport of bad planning, from the demolition of Penn Station decades ago to the psychic mess of Atlantic Yards.

Now there's no evidence that the writer had actually heard Municipal Art Society (MAS) President Kent Barwick's late-2007 observation that Atlantic Yards might be "this generation's Penn Station" because of the "absurdity with which [it] proceeded."

So maybe the meme is getting around.

  1. "Penn Station?" Wishing for "Westway!"
