  • Don't do to the Pratt what Baltimore did to Penn Station

    Don't do to the Pratt what Baltimore did to Penn Station
    I read the article about the $114 million renovation to the Cathedral Avenue Enoch Pratt Library with great trepidation ("Baltimore's Enoch Pratt's central library to get first major renovation," July 5)! Immediately I thought of the horrors bestowed upon our gorgeous train station. I was commuting to Washington on a fairly regular basis during the Penn Station renovations and walked in one week to find the beautiful wooden information kiosk replaced with one made of marble (or some kind of stone). I could not find anyone to explain why this was done. For me, the stone instead of the wood destroyed not just the integrity of the inner space but the feeling of pride and awe I felt every time I entered. Then the Man/Woman statue was erected in front of the building — a sculpture which belongs in Inner Harbor near the sleek, modern Visitor Center, not in front of historic Penn Station. To this day I have not heard an explanation of why these choices were made.
