  • WHAT YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT PENN STATION So you walk up to this place and you see the iconic high ceilings and the sun light creeping in. The view is breath taking. But why is the place all enclosed and why are the ceilings so high? Many people do not know that this place was originally intended for the clandestine buying, selling, auctioning and trading of dinosaurs. Imagine being a brontosaurus and hitting your head in a place that has a low ceiling, ouch!

  • If I were given a choice of choosing between Grand Central and Penn Station, I'd go with the former any day. The elevators in several platforms don't always work. Some of the exits of the station are shady and dirty. The station has good eating options, but the cleanliness is a concern. The station looks amazing from outside and is very close to Herald square.

  • You need to stake out a good spot near where the south bound trains board so you'll be toward the front of the line. Also, it's like traveling in Europe. People WILL bump into you and not say a word...

  • Bad traffic flow management and floor layout for crowds who need to check and wait for their trains; the signs are not always clear, especially to departure. and overall it can be quite dirty. Bathrooms is not clean, and there seem to be a lot of homeless in the station. The Amtrak waiting area is better than the rest. However, I got a lot of help from more than one of the staff to set me in the right direction. Cheerful and helpful employees (at least that was my experience).

  • A necessary evil to have to navigate through. More and more seedy characters around and police officers are mostly together in groups of four or six at one location, looking at their cell phones and laughing with each other while in the other areas of Penn Station, criminals and the mentally ill make it uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous for commuters. A plus is that they gave improved the food selections recently.
