Feb. 28, 1966: This image of wreckage from Pennsylvania Station’s original facade was published in The New York Times on several occasions. It helped create a law establishing the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Ada Louise Huxtable of The Times described this site in Seacaucus, N.J., containing 25 centuries of debris from New York, as a “pretty classy dump” of classical culture, style and elegance — “a setting of macabre surrealist vérité.” Photo: Eddie Hausner/The New York Times
