Description
(2007 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year) During the first half of the 20th century, the original Pennsylvania Station was one of New York City’s grandest landmarks, a palace in the middle of Manhattan. In this history for readers 4 to 8, William Low chronicles Penn Station's construction, its glorious heyday, and its premature end. Public outcry led to efforts to protect other historic structures, for as the author observes, buildings "are not just concrete and steel. They are the heart and soul of all great cities." Low's atmospheric, heavily textured oil paintings bring the hustle and bustle of a vanished era back to life.
