Penn Station’s new main entrance gets fresh renderings
The new entrance at 33rd Street will bring light into the cramped station

With a little more than two years to go before Penn Station is transformed into the brand-new Moynihan Train Hall, some new details about the revamp are being brought to light—specifically, new renderings and specs for an entrance at 33rd Street and Seventh Avenue, which will function as the main entrance of the train depot.

The entry, to be known officially as the East End Gateway, will lead passengers into the Long Island Rail Road concourse via an open, airy atrium with three escalators. It will be “literally the first time you will have illumination and light in that concourse in over 50 years,” according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who unveiled new renderings at a press conference earlier today.

“Passengers will be able to come in that entrance and avoid the front of Penn Station, there will be less traffic and you’ll have access to the subway and the LIRR,” Cuomo said. “It will be a gateway to a world class facility. This is not a proposal—we are getting to work now.”

There will be improvements above and below ground as part of the finalized plans for the entrance. At street level, there will be a new public plaza on 33rd Street—where some pedestrian-only access already exists—as well as a glass atrium with a 32-foot-tall overhang. Underground, the entrance will lead to a concourse with taller ceilings and wider floorplans—a boon for LIRR riders, who currently use one of the most cramped and claustrophobia-inducing parts of Penn Station.

Penn Station deserves more, but this is what they're insisting on moving forward with. 2 Penn should have been taken down and we could have had a new start. It's a minor miracle though that this small portion will be opened up to daylight.

Not great but a lot better than what exists now, which is a shameful disaster for what should be a world class train station, the busiest in New York City. At least we get Moynihan Station too. I so wish we could push out those grubbing Dolans and be rid of MSG in the area once and for all, but that probably isn't happening.. so guess this is the best we can get.

What a waste! At least there is a pretty good chance that the current plans are going to be modified or even temporarily cancelled because the area needs boldness, not this cookie-cutter low-grade work that might as well be dumped in some suburb instead of the nation's busiest railway terminal. It genuinely baffles me that Penn Station and its immediate environs are so neglected, so much more is achievable.

Honestly I'd rather see this fecal matter proposal get flushed and then Vornado and the State can try again in a few years with a fresh set of decision makers, after Cuomo is out of office.

What you see in that last set of renderings is what's getting built, starting this summer. That includes the expanded 2 Penn, and the new entrance to the station below.

Planning for the interior of Penn Station will get underway when Moynihan opens in a couple of years.

This station will hopefully be re done as it needs to be in a few years. This entrance is just mediocre.

As shown in the 15 Penn thread, the extra rendered tower is the Penn Plaza East tower, something that was on the boards back when the entire redevelopment plan was in play. Looks like it will be revived.

Vornado must clean up the filthy block on the east side of 7th between 33rd and the south side of 34th near 7th. Those blocks are disgusting, and no marquis tenant would anchor a tower in that shlock zone.
