Newly renovated Penn station concourse reopens

Gov. Hochul was at Penn station yesterday for the concourse reopening that is part of the full-scale reconstruction of Penn Station into a modern, spacious, world-class single-level terminal. It is open to natural light and features a skylight.

Construction of the concourse is one of three major projects transforming the experience of LIRR riders in the coming months, along with the opening of service to Grand Central Madison and the opening of a new Main Line third track; the total cost of the corridor is about $559 million
