The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey made a big step forward today in replacing their aging bus terminal/hellmouth on 42nd Street by approving plans to build a brand-new terminal. The new building will be constructed after a winning plan is selected from an international design competition, similar to the upcoming overhaul that's coming to LaGuardia Airport. (Rebuilding NYC's major bus depot and a major airport at the same time? What could possibly go wrong?)

The current Port Authority Bus Terminal is a year-round haunted house that was built more than 50 years ago and currently handles more than 200,000 commuters every day. The new plan is expected to cost $10 billion.
