Subcategory for 1910-1963 buildingEdit

This category currently includes a current building and an historic no longer existing building. Subcategories should probably be made for clarity. Is "Category:Pennsylvania Station (New York City, 1910-1963)" a good designation for the older building? I notice the current category description states "English: Pennsylvania Station — The original Beaux-Arts style building in New York City by McKim, Mead & White was completed in 1910 and demolished in 1963." There is no mention that there is also a current building of this name; I think there should be. The date of completion of the current building should be stated. -- Infrogmation (talk) 13:04, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Agreed. The current "building" is really what was left over after the 1963 demolition--some underground concourses and the track platform level, with some expansion & renovation of the concourses later in the 1960s. Not a building in the usual sense (and yet it's the busiest station in the U.S.!). I will attempt to add this explanation in some concise manner. Caseyjonz (talk) 02:38, 31 October 2012 (UTC)
I created the new subcategory for the 1910-1963 building and moved the appropriate pictures there. I added descriptions to both the parent and the subcategory, to delineate which photos belong in each. Caseyjonz (talk) 05:12, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
