Great old station. Definitely old school. Still amazes me how old the technology is to verify your track for the train. But it works and was on time. Definitely feel like your in another era in this place. Lots of quick food options. Signing is...More

So much unrealized potential. Filthy floors, homeless people everywhere. Poor signage. Bathrooms with broken or missing door locks. LIRR is so expensive. Amtrak isn’t exactly cheap either. Someone should make the management of Penn Station live there for a week to endure the pain us...More

Penn Station serves an important purpose to help getting in and out of NYC. BUT - it is ugly! Really bad bathrooms, limited food, chaotic waiting area, etc.. Use it for what it is meant for, but do not waste a minute more than you...More

Utterly inexcusable. You have to go outside to a porta potty shlepping your bags. Incredible. I have never seen anything like this. What the hell were they thinking? Make the men's room unisex temporarily.

Pity they demolished the original station in the 1960s, an architectural gem by all accounts. The modern incarnation is very busy and difficult to navigate. We wanted the Long Island Railroad to Jamaica but the signage was poor and the train horribly overcrowded.

Homeless people hassling people at escalators. Very busy area and spot in Manhattan to access LIRR. The LIRR and subway system both operate here and are overpriced compared to other major cities. Just another example of average services for pretty pennies in NYC.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most

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
