MAS Pre-empts Moynihan Developers

While the players in the proposed Moynihan Station get entangled with one another (wasn’t there supposed to be a plan out there by now?), the Municipal Art Society is hitting them from the outside.

Today, the organization, which likes the idea of a new train station but is none too happy if Madison Square Garden takes it over again, launched a Web site to “document its campaign for the development of a grand Moynihan Station that will rival Grand Central Terminal.”

At the top of the news roll: a poll showing that “nearly 75 percent of respondents would prefer to use the grand entry hall and historic exterior of the Farley Post Office for Moynihan Station rather than for Madison Square Garden.”
