Penn Station's New Face

Penn Station’s New Face

New traffic patterns may be going into effect around Penn station in the next few years.  According to Dan Rivoli’s article “Penn Station’s new entrance” published in the New York Daily News on Friday Sept. 7, 2018 Gov. Cuomo has announced that a new entrance for Penn Station will be opened on 33rd St. and Seventh Ave.  This is the result of a long term effort to improve the function of Penn and surrounding areas.  The new entrance will be in the old James Farley Post Office.  The space will include retail space and a new area for Amtrak and the LIRR.

The move has the potential to alter the foot traffic and change the taxi pick up locations around Penn station.  Construction is projected to be finished by 2020 and the station entrance is scheduled to be opened on 2022.
