But more importantly, it will also renovate and open up the actual Penn Station itself - not just the planned NJ Transit terminal that the current plan calls for. The coice is obvious, or it certainly should be for New Yorkers. And that's coming from someone who uses NJ Transit often.
Silver is the only one providing the sound argument on this one."It has become increasingly difficult to understand the lack of an explanation as to why we are not moving ahead with the broader plan for Moynihan Station.
Under the proposal for phase one presented to the Assembly for approval, only commuters from out of state would benefit from a new facility. We need to move ahead with phase two in order to ensure that Long Island Rail Road, Metro-North, Amtrak and subway riders are all afforded an updated, safe and modern transportation facility. As the proposal stands now, with all the transportation benefits going to non-New Yorkers, I cannot support it."
