(DNAINFO) Jeff Mays | January 6, 2016 — Calling Penn Station “un-New York” and “ugly,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a plan to revamp one of the busiest transit hubs in the world by bringing in more light and adding a state of the art train hall.
“Penn Station is un-New York. It is dark, it is constrained, it is ugly, it is dated architecture, it is a lost opportunity,” Cuomo said during a press conference at Madison Square Garden.
“Travelers are relegated to a bleak warren of corridors. Frankly it is a miserable experience.”
Under the proposal, Penn Station would be revamped to bring in more light under several possible scenarios.
