Penn F—ing Station is a gritty, city-politics saga that follows the debate over how to fix New York’s Penn Station, the largest transit hub in the western hemisphere. But when the battle breaks out between power brokers and residents, what’s at stake is not just a train station; it’s the future of New York City.
