New York Politicians Hype New Train Station Without One Thing: The Trains

(VICE)  Aaron Gordon, June 13, 2022

Before the pandemic, some 600,000 people grudgingly trudged through Penn Station every day. Approximately zero of them would have done so if not for one reason: The trains. 

This may seem like an obvious point. Penn Station is a train station. People from Long Island, New Jersey, and other points in the country via Amtrak come to and from Penn Station to catch a train. Everything else in the station, from the formerly-gross-but-now-decent bathrooms to the sad waiting halls to the underrated pizza place is to serve the people who are there for the trains.
