Old Penn Station advocates drum up support through new ad campaign

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

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?”

Even if this is true, I don't see that the problem is. With that logic, wouldn't the current 1960s Penn Station present a time in America of blacks attacked by police dogs and fire hoses, Mad Men imagery of sexism, etc. which certainly doesn't resonate with diversity lovers?

Who wouldn't love to see it become a reality? Hypothetically, if Penn Station was saved, it seems logical the James A. Farley Post Office Building would become an expansion, so it doesn't create a false sense of history putting the cart before the horse.

I think this is a mistake and a waste of money, it will not solve the underlying problems with the station, no cosmetic redevelopment should happen until there is a plan for the switching and tracks to be restructured.

They cannot even consider a large scale rebuilding of the main block of Penn Station until they have an alternate entrance to greatly expand capacity. Any restoration of the original would involve many blocked off crosswalks and years of detours and temporary walls. The current station, currently more than 3 times over capacity with 650,000 people per day instead of its design for 200,000 per day, could never keep up during construction. Only after Moynihan provides some additional capacity, the main station can be rebuilt. Moynihan Station is hopefully not the end but rather a middle phase towards a larger program. Also, when the Amtrak Gateway Project is finally implemented with the new tunnels and platforms, it should also add to the capacity.

They need to seriously consider buying up the properties on the block south of the MSG/Penn Station/Moynihan station block to allow for the construction of the South Platform complex (and provide sufficient entrance and exit points for those platforms.

They should also seriously consider bringing either the L or 7 trains to the South Platform complex as well (or even better, bring both of them to the South Platforms)
