    NEW YORK (WABC) -- Penn Station serves more people in a day than all three NYC airports and all that wear and tear is taking a toll.On Wednesday, Gov. Kathy Hochul outlined her plan to spruce up the 57-year-old transit hub.Her proposal would delay adding tracks and would instead rehab the old rail station. It will include the same 10 skyscrapers from previous plans that former Gov. Andrew Cuomo was behind, but the size of those buildings would be reduced.She is also proposing making the station a single level train hall - allowing for more open space with higher ceilings, 18 more escalators, 11 more elevators and more accessibility to those who need it.Compared to her predecessor's plan, Hochul's is more scaled down and has a critical focus on tracks used by LIRR, New Jersey Transit and Amtrak.The plan also calls for doubling entrances and extra space to focus on 900,000 daily riders.MTA Acting Chair and CEO Janno Lieber gave Eyewitness News a look."This lower level has no room for passengers,,,why? Because it's filled with backup house space, offices, mechanical...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Gov. Kathy Hochul is changing her predecessor’s plans for improving Penn Station. She is prioritizing improvements for commuters over the station’s expansion, which was a cornerstone of former Gov. Andrew Cuomo‘s plan. That means scaling back planned construction of new buildings in the area and instead focusing on renovations to the existing one, CBS2’s Ali Bauman reported Wednesday. READ MORE: Gov. Hochul’s Full Plan For The Renovation Of Penn Station Say so long to the days of a cramped and dark Penn Station. The edict from Gov.

    NEW YORK (AP) — A new plan to redo New York’s aging and much-maligned Penn Station will be less expansive than earlier visions but will still transform North America’s busiest rail hub from a commuting hellscape into a transformative experience for travelers, Gov. Kathy Hochul said Wednesday as she announced the project. “This day has been a long time coming,” the Democrat said. “We have the opportunity here to reimagine the whole future of Penn Station and the entire neighborhood.” The current 53-year-old Penn Station sits underneath the Madison Square Garden arena and is reviled by commuters for its low, dingy corridors, lack of windows, and overall unsightliness. During pre-pandemic times, it served roughly 600,000 passengers per day on regional rail lines from New Jersey and Long Island, Amtrak and the New York subway system. Projections put that number at more than 800,000 in coming decades, Hochul said. The new plan, which Hochul estimated would cost $6 billion to $7 billion and take four or five years to complete, is a scaled-down version of earlier plans announced by her predecessor,...
    NEW YORK CITY -- The long-anticipated and long-delayed rail route from Long Island to Grand Central Terminal is nearing reality.New York Gov. Kathy Hochul and officials from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority took a 27-minute test ride on the train Sunday morning from the Jamaica station into Grand Central.The MTA's East Side Access project links the Long Island Rail Road to Grand Central. Currently, the LIRR terminates at Penn Station on Manhattan's west side, forcing Long Island commuters who work on the east side of town to backtrack on other modes of transportation to get to work.More than 150,000 customers per day are expected to use the service when it begins next year. Opening up access to Grand Central had been talked about since the 1950s, and construction finally began more than a decade ago.The project was initially estimated about $2 billion but has wound up costing more than $11 billion. Crews have blasted eight miles of tunnels through prehistoric-era bedrock and built a 350,000-square-foot concourse under the terminal.Hochul spoke Sunday about how the new service would address quality of life...
