livelymorgue:

Feb. 28, 1966: This image of the Penn Station wreckage in Secaucus Meadowlands, N.J., was published several times, and helped create a law establishing the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Ada Louise Huxtable of The New York Times described the Secaucus graveyard, containing 25 centuries of debris, as a “pretty classy dump” of classical culture, style and elegance — “a setting of macabre surrealist vérité.” Photo: Eddie Hausner/The New York Times

This hurts my heart.
