I admit that the terminal building shouldn't have been demolished, but Pennsylvania RR was facing bankruptcy, so it was bought by the owner of MSG in 1965. However, the underground station was rennovated to improove for Amtrak, LIRR, and NJ Transit as well as a hub for the subway with the 1, 2, 3, A, C, and E trains. An underground concourse was added, and I have to say that it has more places than the nearby Manhattan Mall that I have been going to for a while. This is what the underground concourse of the new Penn Station looks like.

Huddersfield Train Station, from the outside one of the most beautiful train stations in England. Shame the inside is a let down.

The worst part about Penn Station is that above one of the escalators, they have this schematic of the old Penn Station that says "You are here" underneath.

At least we still have Grand Central.

Find photos of the new Stilwell Avenue train shed in Coney Island. It evokes all the grand train terminals of Europe.


I think it was Kings cross that was also impressive from the inside.


The Milan train station is fantastic.

There is an amusement park across from it on Stillwell Ave.

Haydarpasa Train Station, Istanbul:

Turkey's largest and most magnificent railway station, Haydarpasa was built in the early 20th century by the German architects Otto Ritter and Helmuth Cuno. A monument to the close Turkish-German relations of the time, the station is in neo-renaissance style and has a U-plan. The inauguration ceremony took place on 19 August 1908, just after the proclamation of the Second Constitution.

The façade is revested in textured sandstone, and the main façade overlooking Kadikoy Bay rests on a foundation of 1100 timber piles. The steep pitched roof is slated, and the interior is decorated with trailing foliage cartouches and garlands, and stained glass window. The ceiling of the circular room at the base of the southeast tower has ribbed vaults, and the upper landings have groin vaults. Flights of marble steps lead up from the quay to the monumental façade flanked by circular turrets with conical roofs, clock tower rising in the form of a crest at the centre, baroque decoration, balconies, moulded cornices, and pilasters.
