How about being integrated into the Javits expansion if that ever happens. A combined facility should be very attractive.

The best thing going for MSG was to relocate into the backside of the Farley Building. They didn't like the idea that they couldn't put signage on the 8th Avenue side, which would have been
a terrible idea. They also don't want to move away from the convenient feed of numerous subway and commuter lines. The Farley would have been the closest and best choice.

Or Hudson Yards?

Cuomo taps Roth, LeFrak for Penn Station task force
Governor recommends booting Amtrak and having the state take over

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday tapped Richard LeFrak, Steve Roth and others to serve on a task force dedicated to addressing myriad issues at Penn Station — including its management.

A key step to resolving issues at the busy station, according to the governor, is booting Amtrak. During an event at the City University of New York, Cuomo proposed shifting control of Penn Station to either the state, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey or a private “qualified operator.” In the first scenario, the state would use design-build authorization and work with the private sector to make repairs and operate the station. Whoever takes control of the station will also oversee the redevelopment of the James A. Farley Post Office and the Gateway tunnel project.

“The best way to do this, if you weren’t dealing with all these levels of bureaucracies, is to do it as one, unified project, one project manager and have the entire project work together,” Cuomo said.

Representatives for Amtrak didn’t immediately return calls seeking comment.

Roth and LeFrak, who are also on President Trump’s infrastructure council, have a lot at stake when it comes to Penn Station. Roth’s Vornado Realty Trust owns 9 million square feet of office and retail in the area and is also part of the team the governor tapped to transform the James A. Farley Post Office into a new train hall and shopping center. Meanwhile, LeFrak has spent decades developing parts of Jersey City across the Hudson River. At a panel last month, LeFrak noted that some members of the council have the president’s ear “from time to time.”

Does the city have any land of remotely equal value that they could offer up in a trade? That might sound naive.

^ The MTA and Amtrak co-own, with I think the MTA owning the majority, Sunnyside Yards which is a 192 acre rail yard not far from Manhattan in Queens which has been floated as a sort of Hudson Yards on steroids. Amtrak has been fairly vocal about shedding some of its real estate holdings, like Sunnyside, to raise funds. It'd be interesting to see if an X% increase in ownership of Sunnyside could entice Amtrak to give up Penn.

I think the most important take away from that, is that the Port Authority shouldn't be allowed anywhere near Penn Station. They would undoubtedly figure out a way to make it worse.
