Considering the spaghetti of highways and parkways running through Yonkers I'm not even surprised most people commute to NYC by car. Also, it's pretty ridiculous that uptown trains haven't been extended to Westchester.

Once again the negative nancies have come out the woodwork to complain about every positive incremental change that isn't a complete overhaul. A complete redesign of Penn is coming, hold your horses. In the meantime, these projects do help some (especially for a "measly" $1.6 billion)
Yes, many were obviously hoping for a complete redesign that would rival the old Penn station, which is obviously unrealistic at the current time. I'm not surprised at all at the reactions because there are so many people who expect the moon after the loss of the old Penn. That won't be happening anytime soon because of MSG, and the Governor doesn't seem interested. So it's a decent stop-gap measure until that hopefully eventually happens .

This isn't a "new Penn," anyways. The media just likes to embellish.

It's just the next step in adding capacity, and allowing for future reconfiguration of the existing station.

Moynihan (Farley) has been on the drawing board since 1996, the west concourse secured financing in 2010 (began construction 3 years or so, ago, and will finish, this year), and the ESD was created to work with relevant stakeholders in completing the "Empire Station Complex," which is the envisioned rebuilt Penn, Moynihan-Farley, and Penn South-Gateway.

This is simply one piece of the puzzle; a means to an end, if you will.

Yeah, I've been following the project for years from the beginning.

This one is extremely beautiful and I really like the smaller building next to the skyscraper, the one with stone sides and glass on the front part, are they part from the same complex?

This one is great. Something pretty novel too as you dont see these kind of buildings much in NY but they are coming more and more often now.

mchlanglo793 on Yimby posted this drawing he made in four hours without tracing. It shows 99 Hudson (Jersey City's future tallest currently U/C), 45 Broad, 125 Greenwich St, and 2WTC (Foster's design because he loves that the most).
