[MNRR] Expansion to Penn Station?

Post by NYCTrainFan on 21st February 2010, 11:39 pm

What do you think of the New Haven Line's proposed expansion to New York's Penn Station. Benefits would be connection to the LIRR, more Subway connections, and to select New Jersey Transit lines. I'll post maps of the proposed expansions in a few.

EDIT: Here's Map #1 of the Hudson Line

Map #2 of the New Haven Line

It's only a good idea AFTER East Side Access is finished to prevent overcrowding at Penn Station.

I agree, but I have a feeling they are going to start limited service sooner. The MTA website says:
MTA Penn Station Access Study wrote:Alternative 1: Hudson Line Service in all time periods (peak, off-peak, and weekends) to Penn Station via Amtrak's Empire Connection with new station stops in the vicinity of West 125th and West 62nd Streets;

Alternative 1A: Hudson Line Service only during off-peak and weekend periods to Penn Station via Amtrak's Empire Connection, with no new station stops;

Alternative 2: New Haven Line Service in all time periods to Penn Station via Amtrak's Hell Gate Line with new station stops in the vicinity of Co-op City, Parkchester, and Hunts Point;

Alternative 2A: New Haven Line Service only during off-peak and weekend periods to Penn Station via Amtrak's Hell Gate Line, with no new station stops.
Options with an "A" are only if MTA gets desperate IMO.

That might make Penn Station alot more crowded...and I'd prefer a subway line using the Hell Gate bridge to get to the Bronx, maybe just before the abandoned Pelham Manor Station, so that it services Co - Op City and other areas that don't have subway service.
