An extraordinary evening with three distinguished architectural and planning experts:

  • Vishaan Chakrabarti – Founder of the Practice for Architecture and Urbanism
  • Michael Kimmelman – Architecture critic of The New York Times
  • Tom Wright – President of the Regional Plan Association

They will lay out their vision for the future of the West Midtown Transit Corridor, the largest transportation hub in the United States, which includes Penn Station, Moynihan Station, Amtrak’s Gateway project and the Port Authority Bus Terminal.
Join us for a lively discussion about the future of regional transit, why Madison Square Garden needs to be moved, how it can happen, and what a new, world-class Penn Station would mean for New York.
