23 January 2021 - New York City, New York, United States: Passengers traverse the newly opened Daniel Patrick Moynihan Train Hall in New York City on January 23rd. The hall is an expansion of New York City's Pennsylvania Station into the adjacent James A. Farley Building, the city's former main post office building, and the large skylight provides an open and airy feel. Located between Eighth Avenue, Ninth Avenue, 31st Street, and 33rd Street in Midtown Manhattan, the annex provides new access to most of Penn Station's platforms for Amtrak and Long Island Rail Road passengers, serving 17 of the station's 21 tracks. The hall is named for Daniel Patrick Moynihan, the U.S. Senator who had originally championed the plan. Penn Station is America’s busiest rail hub, and the new hall is the culmination of a vision that New York Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan first promoted in the early 1990s. Moynihan, a champion of civic-minded federal architecture, proposed converting a portion of the Farley Post Office building to expand the crowded and much-unloved Penn Station facilities underneath Madison Square Garden. That scheme was repeatedly delayed, but on January 1, 2021, the result of those efforts – a $1.6 billion train hall designed by architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) – welcomed its first passengers.
