Post Reconsiders Saving Hotel Penn

Last November, the Post's Steve Cuozzo railed against the campaign to preserve Hotel Pennsylvania, which he called "one of the gloomiest structures between the Battery and The Bronx."

Now, the paper is listing the old Glenn Miller hangout among its "10 Endangered Buildings Worth Saving" -- No. 2, in fact, just behind Harlem's Corn Exchange Bank.

Built in 1919 by the Pennsylvania Railroad as part of Penn Station's development. Designed by McKim, Mead & White, and now owned by one of the developers involved in Moynihan Station, it has been engulfed by that controversy. Worst-case scenario: no Moynihan Station and a demolished Hotel Pennsylvania.
