Penn Station to add porta potties during bathroom renovations

But either way, the men’s rooms will be shut down all at once — forcing the portable toilets on male travelers for the duration — and the women’s rooms when it’s their turn...

Amtrak and Intersection Partner to Bring Digital Screens to Amtrak’s New York City Penn Station

Serving more than 600,000 commuter rail and Amtrak passengers every day, New York Penn Station is the busiest transportation hub in the Western Hemisphere. The addition of these 12 new displays throughout the Amtrak concourse will unlock robust, dynamic opportunities for advertisers to reach a diverse and valuable commuter and visitor audience in the world’s top media market. Moreover, Amtrak passengers will benefit from real-time content and train information and emergency messaging...

The birth, life, and death of old Penn Station

The story of one of NYC’s greatest architectural losses

Quote:
Originally Posted by Curbed New York
When Pennsylvania Station first opened in 1910, it was a far cry from the confusing maze of underground tunnels that it is today. The building, which covered eight acres in midtown Manhattan, was an impressive Classical gateway to New York City. The waiting room, inspired by the Roman Baths of Caracalla, had a coffered ceiling that soared 148 feet high. One descended onto sun-bathed train platforms beneath a canopy of iron and glass.

But just 54 years later, that Penn Station was demolished, replaced by the current transit hub that is undergoing a major overhaul due to its ineffective—if not downright unpleasant—design.

The original station was commissioned by the Pennsylvania Railroad, which billed itself around the turn of the 20th century as “the standard railroad of the world.”

When I compare the trains of NJT and Metro-North, the latter seems to offer more amenities to today's commuters, just giving an example of the lack of investment at NJT. And of course the cancellation of projects like the 7 Subway extension.

Old Penn Station advocates drum up support through new ad campaign

A new ad campaign is looking to target riders getting into Penn Station

Quote:

On Monday, this group, known as Rebuild Penn Station, launched an ad campaign to drum up support for their vision. Several New Jersey Transit trains arriving at Penn Station now feature illustrations by Jeff Stikeman that show off recreations of the old Penn Station. Amtrak and LIRR riders will also be given leaflets of these ads, and the question the group is trying to pose to them through this campaign is, “wouldn’t you rather arrive here?”

Coming this winter: A Long Island Rail Road train that begins and ends in Queens

The 8:10 a.m. train from Far Rockaway, which currently makes all local stops to Valley Stream, then Jamaica, Kew Gardens, Forest Hills and Penn Station, will be rerouted to Hunterspoint Avenue, where it will arrive at 9:04 a.m. This train will not stop at Kew Gardens or Forest Hills. Connecting service is available at Jamaica.
