• Moynihan Station Plans (New York Pennsylvania Station) NYP

  • This forum will be for issues that don't belong specifically to one NYC area transit agency, but several. For instance, intra-MTA proposals or MTA-wide issues, which may involve both Metro-North Railroad (MNRR) and the Long Island Railroad (LIRR). Other intra-agency examples: through running such as the now discontinued MNRR-NJT Meadowlands special. Topics which only concern one operating agency should remain in their respective forums.

How does building an extension of the Central Concourse (part of Penn Station proper) translate to being part of Moynihan “Station”?

That is incorrect. The Central Corridor is between the LIRR and the old West side lower level NJT exit area. You can get to it by going down the stairs by the Krispy Kreme in the middle of the upper level. It currently services track 13-20(?). It branches off of the Hilton corridor.
Ok. That's why I said "or at least rehab parts of Penn Station" to be safe. Thank you for the information.

Yeah, this is not part of Moynihan. However, according to NJT's press release, this project is being done in concert with Amtrak and the LIRR, so likely it's a part of the larger Penn Station improvements. The presser also mentioned plans to eventually have NJT take over a majority of the Upper Level on the 8 Ave side once Amtrak moves into Moynihan.

Start now, says Cuomo: https://patch.com/new-york/midtown-nyc/ ... unge-cuomo
...
The state's plan to turn Penn Station into the "Empire Station Complex" would improve conditions at the Midtown transit hub, expand the station's capacity by about 40 percent and reduce congestion for the station's nearly 650,000 daily riders (before the outbreak of coronavirus). The idea was originally revealed by Cuomo in 2016 and then re-revealed in January of this year.

"We have the Empire Station project, which is building a new Penn Station, which is long overdue. That Penn Station has been torturing people for too long. Let's now accelerate the Empire, Penn project while the ridership is low and when we need the jobs," Cuomo said Tuesday.
