Nice video, thanks for sharing!😎

I haven't been at NYP in over a year, but it looks less crowded and Cleaner than I remember it, but still looks like a Subway Station with a Dungeon as compared to what it was in the Golden Age before the Real Estate Greedheads and their Political Puppets destroyed a Great Station in order to build the New MSG!!!!😣

A friend hangs out with buskers making music in and around Penn Station. (Your contribution of whatever amount will be gratefully accepted.)

 

He reported that the new section opened with an area of tables and chairs. For about 2 days. Some semi-permanent residents of Penn Station took over the space and no one else dared to use it.

 

But the nice video makes it look clean and safe.

I appreciate the video. Is it possible to access the main part of Penn station from this area?
I noticed that elevators to get to street level.

Yes it is. You walk by the south turnstiles of the 8th Ave. 34th St. IND station into the LIRR Concourse level.

Hmm a shinier looking low-ceiling confusing underground dungeon instead of old dirty low-ceiling confusing underground dungeon. That's an improvement, I guess?  :wacko:

It is a new branch in the rabbit's warren. It will be shiny until it is not, in a few years.

 

Some peopl have already been complaining that there is too much otherwise unused space there and are wondering when new shops and kiosk will get set up there.
