I love the original Penn Station but it seems like an unnecessary amount of work to maintain two pages about the station, especially as this article is essentially wholly contained in the modern station article. --Zfish118 (talk) 21:18, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

Absolutely agreed. This article is a wholly unnecessary content fork, and contains absolutely no distinct content requiring a separate article. Why was it created in the first place? Seriously, the entire article text is still in the main article! This article should be deleted, period. oknazevad (talk) 13:44, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
absolutely not. there are abundant references to establish notability of both articles. but don't believe me, take it to AfD, and you will be snowballed. Duckduckgo (talk) 17:56, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
No one doubts that the material covered here is notable, that's why it is already quite well and sufficiently covered in the existing article. You took a six-year-old, off-hand, opposed at the time suggestion for a separate page, and without much additional discussion copied verbatim the entire article text from the article where it had been for years. Without removing the original. As was noted in the original opposition the the suggestion, it is still the same station, even if it's configuration has changed. We don't split JFK Airport every time a building is replaced, so why should Penn Station's article receive that treatment. Again, it's the same station—people still board trains sitting on the same tracks from the exact same platforms since the place opened in 1910. The existence of a separate article creates the false impression that the current Penn is a whole new place, and it is not. That is what I object to. oknazevad (talk) 14:32, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
notability goes directly to the merge point. there is abundant sourcing about the historical building, separate and apart from the current building. the JFK terminals are not notable. otoh, i could make the same argument about the Worldport Terminal [1] the current Penn is a new place on the graveyard of the old. this recent bias is well documented. Wikipedia:Recentism if you want to make a fool out of yourself, continue down this path. Duckduckstop (talk) 20:38, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
