    A woman randomly stabbed a 60-year-old straphanger in the back at Penn Station — then told him, “God bless you” before walking off, cops said Sunday. The male victim was getting off a No. 1 subway train at 34th Street and Seventh Avenue in Manhattan around 4:30 p.m. Valentine’s Day when the female stranger came up behind him and stabbed him in the shoulder and back “multiple times,” said police — who tweeted out a surveillance photo of the suspect. “God bless you,” the woman said, according to cops. “Stay safe.” The woman then walked away and remains on the loose, police said.

    The new Moynihan Train Hall, unveiled on Wednesday by Gov. Cuomo, is a sight to behold — a monumentally scaled waiting room for Amtrak and LIRR riders who might blink twice. Crowned with an eye-popping, 92-feet-high skylight, it’s a vision from heaven for passengers inured to the underground Penn Station that’s the Western world’s most-hated place to catch a train.  The Hall, an airy doughnut hole inside the James A. Farley Post Office building, is the centerpiece of a larger, $1.6 billion planned complex inside the Farley building between Eighth and Ninth avenues and West 31st and 33rd streets. It will eventually include a gaggle of entrances, passageways between the avenues, subway links, waiting areas, lounges, stores and restaurants. The Hall and Penn Station one block east, together called the Pennsylvania Station-Farley Complex, will have 50 percent more concourse space than the Penn portion alone.  It comes after three decades of ever-changing plans since the late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan in the 1980s first dreamed of a magnificent replacement for the original Penn Station, which was disgracefully demolished in...

    (Reuters) - A new $1.6 billion train hall at New York City's Penn Station will be unveiled to the public on Wednesday, significantly expanding North America's busiest train terminal amid a public transit crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The construction of a new concourse in the iconic Farley Post Office building across Eighth Avenue from Penn Station had been talked about for decades before being set on a concrete path by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2016. The 255,000 square-foot Moynihan Train hall, named for the late U.S. Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, who championed the project, will serve passengers on Amtrak and the Long Island Rail Road when it opens for business on Jan. 1, 2021. Featuring a 92-foot high glass skylight and a lounge for nursing mothers, the new facility is designed to provide more space for the notoriously congested transit hub, which served some 650,000 people daily before the pandemic. In a statement on Sunday, Cuomo hailed the project as a "shot of hope" amid the dark days of the pandemic and said its completion was...

    By Gabriella Borter NEW YORK (Reuters) - A few dozen travelers got off a train from Miami at New York City's Penn Station on Thursday and were greeted by a team of public health workers and mayoral office staff who handed them informational fliers about the state's new COVID-19 quarantine rules. The team, comprised of Mayor Bill de Blasio's public engagement unit and the city's COVID-19 Test & Trace Corps, were running a "checkpoint" starting at Penn Station on Thursday to ensure that visitors from any of the 35 states on New York's travel advisory were aware of the 14-day quarantine mandate. Their measure aims to keep the infection rate low in the city, formerly the epicenter of the nation's epidemic in the spring with thousands of new cases per day. Matthew Joseph, 46, getting off the train from Miami, said he had not been aware of the quarantine order when he boarded. "I'm not as much of a believer on a lot of this stuff, but I follow whatever's necessary to accommodate everyone else," he said. Checkpoint staff handed...
