50 years ago today some of the brightest minds in the modern world (Norval White, Elizabeth Bliss Parkinson, Aline B Saarinen (wife of Euro), Norman Mailer, Jane Jacobs, and Phillip Johnson) staged a protest in attempts to save New York’s doomed Pennsylvania Station. This event (along with the demolition of the station) brought attention to historical preservation in America for the first time.

The station was lost, but I”ll bet many of this counties most important and influential structures still stand today because of Penn Stations ultimate demise. I call it…

Architectural martyrdom.
