Governor Cuomo Makes Announcement Regarding Penn Station

Earlier today, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and Senator Charles Schumer marked the opening of Penn Station's expanded West End Concourse, the first phase of the transformational redesign of America's busiest transit hub into a world-class facility for the 21st Century. 

The new, state-of-the-art concourse will provide direct access to 17 of the station's 21 tracks, and will connect the future Moynihan Train Hall to Penn Station underground via 33rd Street, with direct connection to the 8th Avenue Subway (A/C/E). 

New plazas and street level entrances at 8th Avenue into the century-old, landmarked Farley Building on either side of monumental staircase will provide access to this new, lower concourse as well as streamline boarding and exiting for passengers. 

Public art and landscaping will greet commuters accessing the trains via these new entrances
