Remember the exciting news that the ancient departure board at Penn Station was getting replaced?
Well then, here’s a tidbit that might grab your petunia or pique your fancy or whatever the hell you want to call you attention span. (Incidentally, petunias are pretty darn fancy.)
Penn Station’s going to be a whole new world by the end of 2020.
Curbed reports that Andy Cuoms busted out some plans for what he’s called “the LaGuardia of train stations,” and we can expect the Pennsylvania Station-Farley Complex by the end of 2020.
The new plans include 250,000 square feet and a renaming of the whole thing to Moynihan Train Hall. Good luck on getting people to say that.
"Yeah, I’m going to Moynihan Train Hall."
"Oh, well, why the f*ck didn’t you just say so?"
We can also expect larger LIRR concourses, especially the 33rd street corridor. They’re nearly tripling that sucker.
No word yet on how pissed off we’ll all be when they’re redoing the A/C/E and 1/2/3 stations that also lead into Penn Station, but for a more user-friendly Penn Station it’s a sacrifice we’re willing to make.
Look upon the renderings, ye mighty, and despair! Or really, just check them out below. No despair necessary.
