Fight the Foster Desecration

February 16, 2012

The New York Public Library has revived its plans to destroy the stack areas in the Carrere and Hastings building at 42nd Street. As I’ve said before in this blog, such a plan would rival the destruction of old Penn Station as one of the most horrific attacks on a public building in U.S. history. Please do whatever you can to stop this madness. Robin Pogregin’s piece in the Times is the place to start. You can also consult some of my previous blogs: A Twist of Fate, Messing With A Masterpiece, or Norman Foster, Preservationist?
