Like just about every other infrastructure project these days, the Metro North effort to allow their commuter trains to run to Penn Station is delayed.
I just noticed the direction/wayfinding sign by the “Long Island Rail Road” sign isn’t finished yet because they have a canvas facsimile of what is supposed to be hanging there that would probably be illuminated like the sign on the left. The concourse looks really good so far, even with the temporary signage.
The canvas placeholder sign’s gone as of 8/1/23.
The concourse looks great.
Interesting advertisement with an (unconfirmed) rendering.
I didn’t realize those ceiling lights did anything. I thought they were just regular dumb lights. I used to hate them because they were way too bright. I guess they were just testing them.
We’re always thinking of ways to annoy you.
Pretty cool technology that I’ve never heard of until just now.
I really think through-running and some of the outside ideas for the Penn Station situation aren’t getting enough attention. The devil is always in the details, but there are just too many interesting ideas with huge, long-term potential in, say, ReThinkNYC’s proposals to ignore. Their main problem is probably just that they’re longer term than the politicians’ elected terms.
