Let's face it. Penn Station New York is bigger and better. The train schedules are easier to follow. The getting down to your track is easy. The schedule is pretty accurate. The cancellations are few right now. There are plenty of places to grab a...More

Penn Station is substantially more diverse and sanitary than Port Authority, and I fail to see how it has experienced a rise followed by a fall, as some critics would say. Train commuting is a decision of the commuter. This terminal isn't as nightmarish as...More

Penn station was a major stop if you were adventurous enough to take the air train connection from Jamaica Station to catch the E line subway into midtown. Climbing out from the bowels of Madison Square Gardens was a good introduction to the midtown vibe.

Amtrak, the Long Island Railroad, New Jersey Transit railroad and the NYC Subway system all converge here at Penn Station. Located under Madison Square Garden (which the original station was demolished to accommodate), dawdling is not recommended during rush hour, but you'll probably find yourself here...More

Penn was crowded with people waiting for trains at 10:30pm on a hot Wednesday night. During the summer, I was temporarily disabled. Getting off the train and going upstairs to the street level was a long wait for the elevator. I ended up climbing the...More

Everyone was very nice about giving us directions to restrooms, cabs, and our next stop. It was a busy Thursday night and we felt very safe at all times.

My wife and I take the D.C. to NYC Amtrak regularly when we want to get to New York. The train is comfortable and it arrives on time. Penn Station is in the heart of NYC, across the street from Madison Square Garden. Although it...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
