The existing track arrangements would make it VERY awkward.

The better solution is probably to have an underground walkway, and/or a set of stops along a future additional extension of the 7 line.
Indeed its only a few blocks , but it could be Long Island City with Rush hour Service only. That area is supposed to be the Next Major Job Hub , it more then just a Subway Station. Seeing how many of the LIRR trains originate from there it shouldn't be that hard. Just 2 Island Platforms..

The problem is where to put those platforms and how to move the trains to and from them.

A 3-Part Plan to Rebuild New York's Old Penn Station

May 4th, 2015

By ERIC JAFFE

Richard Cameron and James Grimes of the architecture and design firm Atelier & Co., in Brooklyn, have developed a plan to rebuild New York City's old Penn Station in all its former glory.

- A rebuilt Penn Station would give New York back its monumental gateway of which it was robbed in 1963. Today’s train passengers are required to navigate a depressing warren of gloomy passages instead of passing through McKim’s sequence of inspiring vaulted spaces.

This must be accompanied by the complete demolition and reconstruction of the underlying tracks and platforms.

The current track set-up and Penn Station is original to the 1910 opening. And it shows. The station wholly inadequate for the traffic that is entering it today, let alone any future growth. The irregularly-shaped, poorly-arranged, under-sized platforms must be replaced with new facilities that are wider, longer, less-cluttered, and more easily accessed.

Turns out it was a typo. The page has now been revised to say that there are 390 cars that have been conditionally accepted; 14 remain under inspection and testing.

The railroad.net gurus also discussed it here:

Family of Ellen Brody, driver in Metro-North crash, to sue

Khurram Saeed and Hoa Nguyen 7:59 a.m. EDT May 5, 2015

The family of Ellen Brody, the driver at the center of the deadliest crash in Metro-North history, plans to sue the railroad and others for her death, saying a badly-designed grade crossing that should have been closed years ago is to blame and not the mother of three.

Her family has filed a notice of claim, the first step before a lawsuit can be pursued. It does not say how much they are seeking in damages.

Brody, 49, of Edgemont, and five train passengers died in the crash.

Parts of the LIRR Babylon use Slab Track instead of Ballast. As far as I know its the only RR in the US to do so..

Direct rush hour train service to the Jersey Shore starts mid-May, NJ Transit says

By Larry Higgs | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
Email the author | Follow on Twitter
on May 04, 2015 at 1:48 PM, updated May 04, 2015 at 5:35 PM

NJ Transit officials were successful in getting federal funds to give commuters six one-seat rush hour trains between New York and Bay Head starting later this month.

The new service is a prelude to NJ Transit officials seeking funds to extend summer express service on the North Jersey Coast Line this year, said Nancy Snyder, an NJ Transit spokeswoman.

The six-new-rush-hour trains, announced Monday, lets passengers skip having to change trains in Long Branch to reach shore towns points in Southern Monmouth and Ocean counties. They also would offer tourists more options for additional direct rides to the shore.

1984 New Jersey Transit Map , The Boonton line didn't merge with the Montclair Branch intill 2002 which severed service to Northern Newark , Belleville , parts of Bloomfield & Arlington. 27 of those Stations were closed due to low Ridership & 5 were due to the Lower Boonton Line closure in 2002 which was a mistake. I can see Ampere coming back down the road with all the redevelopment underway in East Orange , Harrison has been proposed as part of a Transportation overhaul to handle the redevelopments in Harrison , the West Trenton Line & Raritan Valley Line restoration to Philpsburg would see all but 2 stations restored... South Street in Newark was closed during the PRR Era the Newark City Council has requested the PATH add a station near there when they extend the line to the Airport...

Stations closed since 1980 Include
Ampere - Montclair Line
Montclair (Downtown) - Montclair Line , Replaced with Bay Street
Great Notch - Boonton line
Benson Street - Boonton Line
Rowe Street - Boonton Line
North Newark - Boonton Line

Hillsborough - West Trenton Line
Belle Mead - West Trenton Line
Hopewell - West Trenton Line
Tuckahoe - Cape May Line
Rio Grande - Wildwood - Cape May Line
Cape May Courthouse - Cape May Line
Cape May - Cape May Line
51st Street - Ocean City Branch
