REBUILD PENN STATION

A Conversation and An Exhibition

REBUILD PENN STATION

On October 4, 2018, we hosted an evening with Rebuild Penn Station; a conversation with the organization's leaders and design collaborators Atelier & Co. and RethinkNYC.

Watch the webcast now.

New York City’s original Pennsylvania Station was America’s most august railroad terminal and one of the great architectural wonders of the world. Winston Churchill knew it well, passing through it on so many of his visits to the United States.

Simply stated, we want to help bring it back.

"THE GATHERING STORM:" THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY

Churchill's Second World War Memoirs Begin

To say that Winston Churchill's World War II Memoirs were eagerly awaited, in the wake of the war's end, is a wan understatement. The world hungered to read what Churchill had to say about the miracle victory over Germany that he alone had initiated.

His first volume, The Gathering Storm, at last appeared in the summer of 1948.

A DUNKIRK STATE OF MIND

And Arrabella Churchill's Paintings

A DUNKIRK STATE OF MIND

Today, June 4, 2018, is the 78th Anniversary of the end of Operation Dynamo, better known in cinematic circles as the evacuation of Dunkirk. 

If, like us, you have begun to feel as though trapped on a spit of land with the Fascist forces closing in on all sides, then, like us, take heart from the example of Dunkirk. All is not lost. Surely the boats are coming. If only a Churchill would arise.
