Nice job with the CGI!

"Most of the doric columns, stone eagles and other ornamental features from the station were deposited in a New Jersey swamp"

I wonder if in the future, some archaeologist will stumble upon those discarded artifacts and try to announce to the world that he has discovered "Atlantis"!  Watch out Discovery/History Channel, there is another ruse in your future to try to fool the unsuspecting public.

Looking at the CGI, where it goes from a drab room with green colored walls to the representation of Penn Station, there was a wistful part of me wishing they could take the CGI code that generates that image, feed it into a giant 3D printer and voila, a new Penn Station!  I suspect whatever  they do with the Farley building it won't be anywhere near as grand, if they ever in fact do it, and I buy the governor's promise that they will tear down Madison Square Garden and build a new station in its place the way I believe my friend Sal when he  says he will pay me back tomorrow

Two of the eagles were salvaged and are at the entrance to the new, ugly Penn Station / Madison Square Garden.

Besides the two eagles at Penn Station, there is one at Cooper union building in Manhattan, two at Kings Point Merchant Marine Academy, four at the Market Street Bridge in Philly, one at the Smithsonian, one at Valley Forge Military Academy, one at Sydney Hampton College, Virginia, and one in Vinalhaven, Maine.
