Moynihan Station back on track

by

 Governor Paterson and Senator Schumer announced today that hold-out Amtrak is on board with plans to repurpose the Farley Post Office Building (across from Madison Square Garden and the current location of Penn Station) into Moynihan Station.

Penn Station currently handles ~25% of Amtrak’s passengers.

A rebuilt Penn Station on its original site (it was torn down in 1964, which is generally accepted to have been a really bad idea) was a long-time dream of the late Senator Moynihan’s.
