Wallet Card: New Jersey on Parade

Most of Penn Station is pretty bland, but there is a bizarre piece of kitsch in, appropriately enough, the New Jersey Transit section. Titled "New Jersey on Parade", this rotating sculpture shows various scenes from New Jersey history. Shortly after its debut, the Bergen Record called it "silly", comparing it to "the machine that sends your pressed suits for a ride in the neighborhood cleaners". Still, anything to break the general monotony of the railroad station.
