Yesterday, state officials released the draft scope for the Moynihan Station/New Penn Station project. The actual 93-page PDF is online for the public to peruse, and, yes, the plan is to move Madison Square Garden into the James Farley Post Office building on Eighth Avenue and possibly move to U.S. Post Office's operations to the current Penn Station (we highlighted those moves). Say it with us: UGH.


The Sun calls this plan "a test for Governor Spitzer" because his administration has "promised parsimony in negotiating with developers, bringing down the level of public subsidy by standing firm in deals with the private sector." Let the steamrolling begin!
