- THE creation of a visionary new Pennsylvania Station is a goal I strongly support,” Gov. George E. Pataki said last week as he tried to advance the latest version of a 13-year-old plan to expand the station westward across Eighth Avenue into the landmark General Post Office, or James A. Farley Building.
Because it was opposed by Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, the current plan failed to win the unanimous approval of the Public Authorities Control Board on Oct. 18. Whether it is now dead or somehow salvageable remains to be seen.
This Moynihan/Penn Station matter could well be the "powder keg' issue.
