The Penn Station of 2020

650,000 passengers pass through the dated, maze-like transportation hub that is NYC’s Penn Station every single day. This one monstrous space plays host to New Jersey Transit, Amtrak, the Long Island Railroad and, of course, subway stops. It is not only in need of a cosmetic upgrade, but a functional reconstruction. And now, it seems like it will finally receive one, according to New York Governor Andrew M Cuomo. Slated for a 2020 completion, the overhauled Pennsylvania Station-Farley Complex (known as the Moynihan Train Hall) will measure 250,000 square feet and shift different concourses from their current position. There will be another 700,000 square feet dedicated to office and retail spots. A glass skylight above makes reference to the original much-lamented complex, which was demolished to make way for the present one. The project is projected to cost $1.6 billion and hopefully the updates will place clarity and easy of travel at the forefront.
