Quote of the day: Vincent Scully

One entered the city like a god; one scuttles in now like a rat.

Vincent Scully, architectural historian at Yale, comparing the former grandeur of New York’s Penn Station, demolished in the 1960s, with the current underground terminal. He died November 30, 2017, at age 97.
