Moynihan Station renderings unveiled

Amtrak released renderings of the planned interior of its Moynihan Station expansion, the New York Observer reported. In yesterday’s updated vision for its Northeast corridor high-speed rail, Amtrak laid out its plan to expand the present terminals across Eighth Avenue into the Farley Post Office Building for a new station.

The new station will consolidate the train service’s operations and, by 2030, allow for travel from the city to Philadelphia in 37 minutes and to Washington, D.C. in 94 minutes, according to Transportation Nation.

However, that construction is still years off. As previously reported, after much delay, the first phase of the project is slated to get off the ground this year with the construction of new entrances to access the tracks that already exist under the post office, an underground walkway between Penn Station and Moynihan Station and new ventilation systems.
